With the resurgence of interest in the blaxploitation sub-genre, African American ass kicker Carol Speed's resumé can probably pull more juice now than it could in her heyday. Though never reaching the market penetration of a Pam Grier, stacked soul sister Speed did rack up a strong batch of ghetto-fabulous credits. Her frankly sensual, lazy-eyed stare can be seen looking insolently out from Black Samson (1974), Disco Godfather (1979), and The Mack (1973). A morality tale of pimpin' and consequences, The Mack is a message movie with more than one point--two of them being Carol's erect, upward-straining, chocolate-dipped nipples. In The Big Bird Cage (1972), a chick prison flick that also features the divine Ms. Grier, Carol kneels in surrender. Desperation and abandon struggle on her face. Her tittie slips from its confining garment and makes a flash for freedom.
