With no better thing to do, I went to a movie theater to watch "Larry Crowne", starring Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. To my surprise, the opening credits had Pam Grier as one of supporting actresses! Pam? the 70s catfighter queen of B movies? Amazing. In fact, it was not easy to recognize her in the role of Frances, a college teacher. Anyway, she was there, alive and well, with a few extra pounds. According to the IMDb site, she has been very active after leaving the catfighter stereotype role.
She was already featured here in the Blog; however, in this post I have better quality clips, besides a few seconds interview on the "Larry Crowne" set. The segments are from "The Arena" (1974), "Black Mama, White Mama" (1973), "Big Doll House" (1971), "Foxy Brown" (1974), "Hit Man" (1972) (the frontal nude scene), "Coffy" (1973), and the above mentioned interview (yes, she is Pam Grier at 62...).
