“Cool Breeze” – Another Blaxploitation Classic Coming Out On DVD

"Cool Breeze" - Another Blaxploitation Classic Coming Out On DVD

Slowly but surely, those wonderful blaxploitation classics from yesteryear (the early to mid 1970’s) are being released on DVD and soon the 1972 MGM heist film Cool Breeze will join the list.

The DVD-on-demand specialty label Warner Archive will release the film on DVD July 17th 

Starring Thalmus Tasulala, Raymond St. Jacques, Lincoin Kilpatrick, Judy Pace and Pam Grier in a small role, the film deals with a team of criminals who band together to rip off THE MAN in order to establish a bank in the community..or maybe just to keep it for themselves

The film was actually a blaxploitation remake of John Huston’s classic 1950 heist film The Asphalt Jungle and no one in the right minds would say that Cool Breeze is even remotely within a 100 mile radius of being anything like Huston’s film. But it is a hell of a lot of fun and nostaglia. 

Here’s the trailer
