Trivia

Larry Cohen filmed some of the scenes with the same crew and equipment as It's Alive (1974), and due to Fred Williamson's other commitments he had to make most of the film with a stand-in, Williamson himself only really appearing in the close-ups. The close-ups were filmed in LA, where Williamson was based, and the rest of the film was shot on location in New York. See more »

You never know whose doing up your socks and underwear.
24 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

70s action and a blaxploitation classic with Fred Williamson (The Inglorious Bastards - 1978, MASH) as Black Caesar leading the way backed up by the luscious Gloria Hendry.

Lots of shoot-em-up action as the black gangsters take on the Mafia and the crooked cops that support them.

Things settle down, Black Caesar moves to LA, and comes back with a vengeance when his pops is killed. Cute scene where Mafia in park dies with hot dogs in their mouths.

The dialog and story wasn't the greatest, but if you are looking for righteous action, you've come to the right place.
