Hommage to Pam Grier

Pam Grier has had a long career in the movies in a variety of roles. However, in her beginning in early 70´s she was an eponymous of female fight. Afro-american and with a beautiful figure, she was (and still is...) well endowed for that.

She appeared in half a dozen films at that time and in almost of them there were good fighting scenes with her. Prison inmates, gladiators and cop plots were the movie genres chosen by producers whose scripts always allowed for several minutes of women fighting scenes. Pan became a staple for this specialty and many spectators already knew what to expect from her movies.

Later on, she moved away from those marked characters and took a different career path. She is still active nowadays according to the Internet Movie Database.

In the video below, you are going to watch scenes from "The Arena" (aka "Naked Warriors") - two scenes, including a brief full nude in an exotic scrubbing moment, "Big Doll House" and "Coffy".
