Coffy


1973       Pam Grier

Flower-child Coffin, known familiarly as Coffy (PAM GRIER), is an attractive young nurse who is determined to kill everyone responsible for destroying her eleven-year-old sister who has lost her mind through the use of dope. First she lures a pusher, Sugar-Man (MORRIS BUCHANAN), into a bedroom, blows his head off with a shotgun. Then she forces his driver to give himself a fatal shot of heroin.

Coffy, who is part Afro, part Mexican, part Indian and part Filipino, is all vengeance. She hasn't time for Carter (WILLIAM ELLIOTT), a young black policeman, and she learns that his partner, McHenry (BARRY CAHILL), who is white, is probably crooked.

Coffy's boy friend, Brunswick (BOOKER BRADSHAW), is a city councilman. He is a fortyish mulatto, whose pal is Ramos (RUBEN MORE NO), a former policeman of Spanish-Mexican extraction who is now a racketeer. Coffy joins them and Brunswick takes her to his apartment and they go to bed together.

Coffy learns from Carter that McHenry is working with the drug mob, and that the

head of it is a Las Vegas gangster, Vitroni (ALLAN ARBUS). Suddenly two hoodlums burst in. They have been sent by McHenry to smash Carter, because Carter knows McHenry's secret. They are Omar (SID HAIG), a tall Armenian, and Nick (LEE DE BROUX). They rough up Coffy and batter Carter so he will never be the same.

Coffy discovers from a prostitute, Priscilla (CAROL LAWSON), that a big shot dope distributor and pimp, King George (ROBERT DOQUI), works for Vitroni. Before Coffy can leave Priscilla a huge black lesbian comes in and savagely attacks Coffy.

Coffy escapes and contrives to meet King George. Coffy lures him into a boudoir, and later when she is alone there she takes the heroin which he has hidden and substitutes plain powder for it.

Knowing that one, of King George's girls, Meg (LINDA HAYNES), is going to attack her, Coffy puts razor blades in her hair. In the wild fight which follows, Meg slashes her hands. Vitroni, who has come in, watches the battle with relish, and tells King George he wants to have sex with Coffy.

Studs (BOB MINOR), who is a black bodyguard for King George, takes Coffy to her hotel room so she can clean up for Vitroni. Then she goes to Vitroni's bedroom and just as he is about to practice his particular perversion upon her she pulls a revolver. But Nick bursts in, grabs her and disarms her. Vitroni suspects that Coffy is someone's agent, so he calls in his aide, Aleva (JOHN PER-AK), to get his opinion. Aleva says King George put her up to it. Vitroni orders Omar and Nick to kill King George, which they do.

Brunswick is summoned to a hideaway, where he finds Vitroni, McHenry, Aleva, Nick and Ramos. They figure that because he is black he must have been in on the plot to kill Vitroni. They test him by bringing Coffy in front of him and accusing him of sending her to shoot Vitroni. Brunswick, who has been collaborating with Vitroni all along, says they should kill Coffy.

McHenry, Omar and Nick put Coffy in McHenry's police car and give her what they think is a fatal shot of heroin. Actually it is only the harmless powder which Coffy substituted in King George's bedroom. They pull Coffy out of the car and Omar starts to have intercourse with her when she stabs him in the throat with a bobby pin she has sharpened. He begins to bleed to death.

Coffy runs up an embankment. Nick shoots at her, but he is hit by a car and killed. McHenry tries to run her down. She eludes him and he drives off the end of an uncompleted freeway, plunging to a fiery death.

Coffy steals a car and crashes into the hideaway, where she kills Aleva by running into him and kills Ramos and Vitroni with a shotgun. Then she goes to Brunswick's beach house and shoots off everything that was where his crotch used to be.

Coffy has destroyed those who destroyed her sister.
