Cool Breeze


1975       Thalmus Rasulala

Thalmus Rasulala, made his film debut in MGM's Cool Breeze; interviewers discovered an amazing amount of research has gone into his portrayal of "Sidney Lord Jones."
Rasulala explains, "The Lord,' as he is known to his close associates, came into his manhood hustling the streets of San Francisco. Spirited by the frustrations he endured as a second class citizen, and his newly found sense of Black pride, he set out to better his condition.
"He secured a job as a bank clerk, and by exercising his ability, worked himself up to a position of responsibility within the bank's administrative branch.
"Then he began his attack on the 'system' at its core. He started shuffling the banks trust dollars around to suit his own purposes, one of which was the financing of Black business within the Black community, a sort of contemporary Robin Hood.
"The Lord' was quite successful in his endeavors, until one of his women thought she was being short-changed, and took it upon herself to blow his game.
"After a year-and-a-half in

San Quentin, 'The Lord' is back on the streets. That's when our movie begins," explains Rasulala.
"Any 'brother' who has been out there in the jungle, and is hip to the ghetto environment, knows exactly who 'The Lord' is and where he's coming from, and where he's going is what our film is all about. He's still got the notion that financing legitimate Black business is the way for Blacks to break out of the ghetto, so he plans a three million dollar diamond heist to get capital. Unfortunately he finds that all his 'brothers' aren't as high principled as
he, and is soon caught in a double-cross, as well as on the run from the police."
As far as director, Barry Pollack is concerned, Rasulala's research has paid off. "He took the character of Sidney Lord in a totally different direction than I had conceived it," says Pollack, "but as far as I'm concerned, he is Sidney Lord Jones."
Cool Breeze produced by Gene Corman, also stars Judy Pace, Jim Watkins, Lincoln Kilpatrick and Raymond St. Jacques. Director Pollack wrote the original screenplay.
