Directed by Jack Starrett | 1973

With Tamara Dobson, Bernie Casey, Shelley Winters

Altitudinous, uzi-wielding Special Agent to the President Cleo (six-foot-two model Dobson, listed by Guinness as the “Tallest Leading Lady in Film”) blows up Turkish poppy fields as she takes down the smack business run by Shelley Winters’ hysterical queenpin. This ferocious mix of feminism and fight-the-man attitude features a funky, Gold-selling soundtrack and cameos by Soul Train’s Don Cornelius and Good Times’ Esther Rolle.
