Statuesque action star Pam Grier is supremely cast as comic-strip heroine Friday Foster. A free-lance photographer with an insatiable thirst for adventure, Friday unearths a conspiracy to assassinate several prominent black political leaders. Unusually well cast for a blaxploitationer, the film features Yaphet Kotto, Godfrey Cambridge, Eartha Kitt, and, as a "Godfather" type, Jim Backus. Nothing happens in the film that is not completely predictable, but that's what Pam Grier fans craved back in 1975. Created by Jim Lawrence and Jorge Longaron, the originally Friday Foster cartoon strip ran from 1970 to 1974, one of the few collaborations of its kind between an American scriptwriter and a foreign artist.
