Cotton Comes to Harlem


1970       Godfrey Cambridge

The Story

The Reverend Deke O'Malley (CALVIN LOCKHART) sponsors a mammoth barbecue in the heart of Harlem to afford would-be investors on opportunity to part with their hard earned Savings in his "Back to Africa" movement.

Believing the situation could stand a little investigating, Coffin Ed Johnson (RAYMOND ST. JACQUES) and Grave-digger Jones (GODFREY CAMBRIDGE) a pair of Harlem detectives, decide to do so. A young fortune is subscribed at the barbecue. But before Deke can get his hands on if Ex-Convict Calhoun (J. D. CANNON) does. But when Coffin and Digger catch up with the pair neither has the money.

Junk Collector Uncle Bud (REDD FOXX) who had subscribed to Deke's offer, finds a bale of cotton on a Harlem Street and he sells if to Junk Dealer Goodman (LOU JACOBI). But when he learns that Strip Tease use Billie (MABEL ROBINSON) has thought up a novel routine in which she will need a bale of cotton Bud buys if back and gives it to the girl.

From there

on in the story becomes a wild chase all over Harlem during which Deke's girl friend the voluptuous Iris (JUDY PACE) and Mabel Hill (EMILY YANCY) who - well, who just happens to have an apartment,-become involved, and all are out to possess themselves of that bale of cotton. So do some white college students who come down to harass the "Fascist" cops for their "persecution" of Deke.

If turns out that the lost money is in the bale of cotton, but how if got there is the big question.

It's all in the surprise ending-an ending incidentally, which underscores by paraphrase a famous Biblical quotation:

The good Lord taketh away. But He also provideth.
