Come Back Charleston Blue
Starring: Godfrey Cambridge, Raymond St. Jacques,
Director: Mark Warren
Charleston Blue is dead. That's what everyone thought when the notorious gangster was
laid to rest decades ago. But now a new string of murders has hit Harlem. And what
27th Precinct detectives Gravedigger Jones and Coffin Ed Johnson want to know is why
does a trademark blue steel razor of Charleston Blue appear alongside each victim?
Cotton Comes To Harlem cops are back, cracking jokes and heads with
equal ease. Gravedigger (Godfrey Cambridge) and Coffin Ed (Raymond St. Jacques)
will sometimes do the wrong things for the right reasons - or maybe the right
things for the wrong reason. But their on the file style can't mask their
determination to protect decent folks from pushers and thugs - and is seems
that the Charleston Blue murders are tied to those two criminal elements.
A midget hit man, a hood dressed as a nun and a lookout with a talent for throwing
an exploding football into vehicles wandering into the wrong place are also part
of this mystery where streets are mean - and Gravedigger and Coffin Ed know how to
be a lot meaner.
