Blaxploitation Movie Fan Must Have!
Film Fetish Flea Market worked directly with Sheba, Baby co-star Austin Stoker to create this unique Sheba, Baby collector’s set. The set includes an Austin Stoker autographed copy of Arrow Video’s recent 2-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray + DVD Sheba, Baby Combo Set. The set features a reversible sleeve with the original movie poster on one side and newly commissioned artwork by Sean Phillips on the other. There’s also a massive amount of special features, galleries, interviews and more. If that weren’t enough, this Exclusive Collector’s Set also includes a rare photo reproduction print with Austin Stoker and Pam Grier in a scene from the movie, also signed.
Please Note: Because we have multiple sets, the signatures may vary slightly from the photos. I have included photos of Austin Stoker actually signing the sets for us, which buyers are free to download for certification purposes.
Condition: Movie is in Like New condition and discs have never been watched. Outer shrink wrap was removed so sleeve could be signed directly. Photo print is a high quality modern reproduction in Near Mint condition. Print may have slight creasing, bends and small corner dings.
About the Movie
HOTTER ‘N’ COFFY MEANER ‘N’ FOXY BROWN!
Fresh off her career defining roles for Jack Hill in Coffy and Foxy Brown, Pam Grier returned to pure Blaxploitation (after turns in Blaxploitation-horror and action), in cult filmmaker William Girdler’s (The Manitou, Abby) ‘Sheba, Baby’… Grier plays Sheba Shayne, a private eye based in Chicago who is called to her hometown to stop the local mob boss (played by “that bad D’Urville Martin”, Black Caesar, Dolemite) from moving in on her father’s loan business. Aided by her father’s partner, Brick Williams (Austin Stoker, Assault on Precinct 13, Battle for the Planet of the Apes), Sheba finds out that the violent thugs aren’t going go away with a fight. Car bombs, gun fights and boat chases ensue whilst armed with her curves, street smarts and a .44, Sheba is in for a bloodbath! Grier would appear in three Blaxploitation classics in 1975 (the others were Bucktown and Friday Foster), where she was at the top of her game and genre, with the Los Angeles Times calling her “cool, tough and glamorous – a female fantasy Wonder Woman”, further cementing her status as the first female action star.
