Photo Archive

[African-American Film], [Blaxploitation] Pam Grier's Foxy Brown Movie Lobby Card Archive of 7 Lobby Cards and Original Photographs. American International Pictures, 1974. Each lobby card and original photograph measures 10" x 8". Foxy Brown was a notable film, paving way for the portrayal of Black women in leading action roles. Her personal style along with her strength and sass made her an iconic figure in the realm of Blaxploitation. In a world where many Black women were sexualized, Grier utilized her role as Foxy Brown to convey the ultimate female hero from a stylistic, fashion-oriented angle in many aspects. Her groovy 70's attire, witty words, and biting tongue were all emphasized throughout the film, reshaping the often negative, stereotypical portrayals of Black women in its time. In all six lobby cards, with one duplicate, Pam Grier is spotted in stylish 70's attire, bold hoop earrings, and her signature afro. Two lobby cards capture her bound by handcuffs on a couch, whilst another captures her alongside co-star Peter Brown. Another lobby card captures Grier in fear amidst Steve Elias holding a gun to her temple. This film played a pivotal role in conveying Black women in a positive, strong, and empowering light, and as a result, Grier redefined African-American beauty, sexuality, and womanhood, which led to the diversification of African-American actresses onscreen. This archive marks the first shift in the portrayal of Black women in the Blaxploitation genre. All lobby cards are in very good condition.
