Nurse "Coffy" Coffin leads a double life. During the day, she's a nurse at work.

When Harriet comes back and catches Priscilla talking to Coffy, she throws a chair at Coffy and it misses and hits the wall. After the impact, Harriet audibly says to Coffy, "Come on, bitch!" But if you look at her mouth during the impact a moment earlier, she clearly said the same line just then as well, and it was dubbed out by the foley used for the sound of the chair breaking.

What a great film! After seeing "Friday Foster" last week which was a quite disappointment Pam found back to old qualities with this movie! The nerve-straining and tame political correctness of "Friday Foster" is fortunately totally missing, because "Coffy" follows straight up to some unwritten genre laws: the white are the bad guys, black ones the good - that´s how the rules of blaxploitation normally function! The story is simple: nurse Coffy takes revenge for her little sister, who was maltreated by the drug syndicate. Sometimes the film reminded me on Michael Winner´s "Death Wish", however Charles Bronson is a little milk boy in comparison to the tough and sexy Coffy: Pam shows her breasts every five minutes and when she doesn´t she kills a dozens of people instead. The scene when she blows away the head of an evil pimp is next to William Lustig´s "Maniac" the greatest headshot ever featured in a film! Loved also the hilarious girl brawl at the buffet! A great fun flick!!
