Starring: Clarice Taylor, Leonard Jackson, Virginia Capers,

Director: Oscar Williams
You've been Coffy-tized,
Now prepare to be glorified, unified and filled-with-pride with this "breakthrough film" (Variety) that
was one of the first to show a real African-American family while delivering "enough solid laughs for
any audience" (Boxoffice)!
With "a combination of seriousness and warmth that is rare in any film"(Players) and a sense of family
that anyone can relate to, Five on the Black Hand Side is a "wisely entertaining film" (New York)!
In the Brooks family, Papa may rule with an iron fist...but Mama's about to slap him down with her open hand!
Tired of being told what to do and when to do it, she goes to war! Swapping her old housedress for army-green
duds and combing her tidily coiffed head into a ceiling-scraping 'fro, she takes to the roof on strike...
until her browbeating, penny-pinching, gas-passing husband agrees to meet her bill of rights!
Price: $14.99 [DVD]
