Man's Town ... Black Man's Law!
American title BOSS NIGGER
also known as BOSS and THE BLACK BOUNTY HUNTER
starring: Fred Williamson · D'Urville Martin · William Smith · R G Armstrong
· Barbara Leigh
bounty hunter and his partner ride into a small Western town in pursuit
of an outlaw. He discovers the town has no sheriff, and soon takes over
that position. Of course, most of the white folks are against the idea
but they finally decide a 'negro sheriff is better than no sheriff.' The
new sheriff and deputy keep the peace but - while doing that - they also
raise hell, chase women, and scam the locals, as they wait for the chance
to collect their bounty.
(Oakland Raiders/Kansas City Chiefs) football star Fred Williamson rose
to prominence in the early 1970s as one of the first African-American
male action stars of the "blaxploitation" genre. Interestingly,
because of his fluent command of the Italian language, he initially went
to Europe [with Issac Hayes] for TOUGH
GUYS directed by genre filmmaker Duccio Tessari (MAN
WITHOUT A MEMORY, the RINGO
series, et al). Williamson is still acting today after 100+ movies
and Umberto Lenzi's DETECTIVE
Arnold is the director here. His name is VERY familiar
to genre fans, essentially for two major reasons. He was the director
(and often the writer) for numerous monster movies from the fifties, most
SHRINKING MAN, MONSTER
ON THE CAMPUS and the CREATURE
FROM THE BLACK LAGOON series. Secondly, Jack Arnold was the director,
(sometimes writer) and producer for the Gilligan's Island
television series (1964-66). Mr Arnold died from
Arteriosclerosis at age 75, March 1992.
