Sequel to Cotton comes to Harlem. Another bad influence is hitting Harlem and Gravedigger and Coffin Ed are the two cops who will stop it. Charleston Blue was a prohibition era black gangster, dead 4 decades. When he seems to have reappeared, once again slitting throats with his Blue straight edge razors, the two cops begin a complicated search for some answers.Written by

The screenplay for the film is inspired by the legacies of real life Harlem gangsters Bumpy Johnson and Frank Lucas. The character of Joe (the fake Charleston Blue) resembles the actual Frank Lucas, who was a major drug dealer around Harlem and Newark, during the time the film was made. There are numerous parallels between the Charleston Blue persona and Frank Lucas, who was known for his "Blue Magic" brand of heroin. See more »

I have seen and own this movie and think it's a "classic". I absolutely love the film from the actors, story and especially the soundtrack to it.
For anyone that may have influence or knows someone who does in regards to this film, I would ask or even implore you to make this film available on DVD!!! I have been waiting for years for this to become available on DVD and it hasn't up to this point. I tell you that I will be one of the first in line to get it. Willie Dynamite was just released a few months ago and it was made, roughly, sometime after Charelston Blue I believe. Please bring it out on DVD. VHS is cool, but...
Anyway, love the movie, and would definitely recommend it to anyone to enjoy.
BTW, was/is there a soundtrack available as well? That's probably on a tape and not a CD huh? LOL!!! Please respond.
