Black Mama, White Mama: Pam Grier y Margaret Markov

Surprisingly, “Black Mama, White Mama” was co-written by Jonathan Demme and directed by Eddie Romero. The film is a grindhouse spin on Stanley Kramer’s “The Defiant Ones” mixing Blaxploitation and women’s prison classic themes.

Originally filmed in 1973 in the Philippines, “Black Mama, White Mama” follow to escaped convicts – Lee Daniels (Pam Grier) who is in the pen for being part of a prostitution harem, and Karen Brent (Margaret Markov) who is a revolutionary. The two girls don’t get along and when they are handcuffed together to be transferred to the main city, Karen’s gang is waiting in the jungle to break her out. All hell breaks loose and the two female cons make their escape while still being shackled at the wrists.

Lee has stashed a briefcase full of 40 grand she ripped off from her pimp and Karen wants to get back to her revolutionary friends on the other side of the island. Meanwhile, the unethical cop hires the local bounty hunter (Sid Haig) to hunt the women down in hopes of getting a promotion, finding the money and the boat load of drugs.

With a tag ling which reads “Chicks in chains on the lam from prison hell,” you really can’t go wrong here. There are major gun battles, plenty of blood, a little humor and a whole lot of a gratuitous boob shots. After all, it’s a female prison movie.
