It was always going to be a struggle to find a film to watch in the 70s, especially as most films were made for American audiences.
But that hasn’t stopped some of Hollywood’s best-known studios from putting out some of the most well-known and enduring exploitation films in the history of cinema.
In fact, in the last 20 years, there have been nearly 100 black-and-white exploitation films.
Of those, 70% have been released in the United States.
But that’s not to say black- and white films have never made it into theaters, with a handful of notable examples that have been successful enough to warrant inclusion on the list below.
These include The Man from Nowhere (1972), starring Robert Redford, the most famous black film director of all time, and the iconic exploitation film, The Black Dahlia (1973), starring Danny Glover.
But for a variety of reasons, those films never made the jump to the big screen.
While most of those films were directed by black directors, some of them also feature stars of color, including the late, great George C. Scott and his son, Brian, and director John Landis.
There’s also the Black Panther, a film that was a hit in both the U.S. and the U-K.
In fact, the films featured in this list are some of only a handful that were made in the U, U-S.
A handful of films that made it to theaters in the early 80sA film that’s mostly unknown to most Americans today, The Little Shop of Horrors (1983) is one of the only black-directed exploitation films ever made.
It’s about a family who moves to New York City and finds a strange dollhouse that will help them cope with the loss of a child.
They find the dollhouse in a neighborhood, where they find out that it’s a black man trapped inside.
The dollhouse turns out to be haunted, and when the family goes to investigate, the doll house starts to play strange music.
The family is terrified and decide to leave the dolly house.
However, when they return, they find a man and his dolly on the other side of the wall.
The dolls come after them and they all end up being beaten up by a group of black men who have come to investigate.
After they escape, the men chase them, and after one of them gets knocked to the ground, the others chase after him.
This eventually leads to a shootout.
The Little Shop is the only Black film ever madeA short film by the same name starring a young African American, James Baldwin, who is about to embark on a life-changing journey when he meets the daughter of his mother’s lover.
The Little Store is about a man named Joseph (Baldwin) who lives in a Black neighborhood and, while looking for his daughter, finds the doll, which turns out has a special ability that allows him to see invisible things.
He finds the girl’s doll, and decides to help her find her own doll, but she gets trapped inside a doll house.
After finding her doll, he realizes that she has a secret identity and she’s a white woman.
He has to use a doll to find out what her secret is.
The movie is about the story of a young man who is struggling with his identity.
The movie is a remake of the classic Black Dahlias (1962), starring John Travolta, that starred Al Pacino.
The film is about two brothers who live in a white neighborhood in New York, where the father has a girlfriend, who they marry.
When they’re a couple, the father becomes infatuated with his daughter and he begins to seduce her.
Eventually, the two brothers become involved in a murder and the father’s girlfriend dies.
They decide to move to another white neighborhood, and this time, the girl is a girl of color.
The film is set in a predominantly Black neighborhood in Los Angeles, where two Black men are living together, one of whom is an old friend of the brother who has an affair with the mother of his daughter.
The brother is not allowed to live in the white neighborhood.
The two brothers go to see the girl and the film ends with them in the black neighborhood.
There are a few Black-and, mostly white, exploitation films released in theaters in recent years.
In the late 80s, the first of these was the comedy/drama, The Great Gatsby, directed by Joe Dante.
In it, the story centers on a black family who are struggling to make ends meet after their beloved father (played by Steve Buscemi) is killed.
The great gatsby film was not a box office hit, but it was a critical and commercial success, grossing over $1.5 billion at the box office.
