Vintage original 14 x 11" (35 x 28 cm.) black-and-white double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Tamara Dobson, Bernie Casey, Brenda Sykes, dir: Jack Starett; Warner Brothers. Of Tamara Dobson, Donald Bogle wrote "Glamorous, statuesque, sophisticated, and surprisingly sweet-tempered and unassuming, Dobson is a delectable comic-strip heroine come true." That indeed she is as Cleopatra Jones, a United States Special Agent, who is assigned to crack down on drug trafficking. That she does with a vengeance. One of the best of the "blaxploitation" genre, with outrageous fashions and a 1973 Corvette Stingray of which the T-bar panel in the roof above the driver's side automatically opens when she gets out the car door in order to not disturb her afro. Tiny crease at top right corner, light scratch at bottom right corner. ABOUT FINE. Bookseller Inventory #
