Trailers from Hell: David DeCoteau on ‘TNT Jackson,’ Starring Jeannie Bell

Trailers from Hell: David DeCoteau on 'TNT Jackson,' Starring Jeannie Bell

New World Pictures Action Week! concludes at Trailers from Hell with filmmaker David DeCoteau introducing “TNT Jackson,” which features the tagline: “You’ll know you’ve been kissed by her ebony fist when
the blood from your face stains her diamond necklace!”

The above kind of doggerel was common in selling ’70s black
action movies (that line is from the radio spot). Jeannie Bell, Richard
Burton’s foxy then-girlfriend, stars in this Filipino epic for which the
entirely fictitious Ebony Fist award was invented and bestowed on Ms. Bell by
those rascals in the New World publicity department.
