“Superfly” Screens at SUNY Oswego 2/25

18 February 2010

One of the most successful of the early ’70s blaxploitation cycle. Coke-dealing Priest (O’Neal), so-called because he carries his samples in a crucifix, sinks his capital into purchase of thirty keys of the stuff – the final deal that will get him out of ‘the life’, so the legend goes….(from the Time Out Film Guide)

Dr. Kenneth Marshall continues his screenings of blaxploitation movies on campus on Thursday, February 25.  Superfly (directed by Gordon Parks, Jr., starring Ron O’Neal, with music by Curtis Mayfield) will be shown at 6:30 PM in Lanigan 107.
