Jim Brown, sildenafil who traded his status as football’s greatest running back to become a movie star and eventually an activist to steer kids away from a gang lifestyle, is ready for his feature film close-up. Brown has pledged his life rights to producer Hal Lieberman for a feature film that will be written by Bob Eisele (The Great Debaters) and directed by Jonathan Hock, helmer of such documentaries as The Lost Son Of Havana and Michael Jordan To The Max. Lieberman is about to shop the package.

Lieberman said he first met Brown on the set of New Jersey Turnpikes, a basketball comedy he produced and Brown starred in. Though that film never got released, they kept talking and remained friendly until finally Brown was ready. “I’ve been a fan and follower of his career over my lifetime, and there is 50 years of history under his belt,” Lieberman said. After a standout college career at Syracuse (they say he was a better lacrosse than football player), Brown was drafted by the Cleveland Browns and set every record for a pro running back, including career rushing yards, touchdowns and single season rushing yards.

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...Brown retired from football at the still young age of 29. He then starred in movies, becoming one of the first African-American action stars. He appeared in many low-budget blaxploitation productions, as well as many big-budget blockbusters.

Brown appeared in one of the first interracial love scenes with Raquel Welch in 1969?s 100 Rifles.

Brown has been active in many causes, most recently in working with inner-city youth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
It's Black History Month! You Know What That Means! PDF Print E-mail

Click to View Larger... Click to View Larger...February is Black History Month. This is a month set aside to celebrate the all too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.

So, here at Big Bad Drive-In, we'd like to spend the rest of the month celebrating the contribution of the great Black actors and actresses have made to the motion picture industry.

Just for February, wer are renaming the site to: "Big Black Drive-In"! That's right baby, for the rest of the month, we're gonna be all blaxploitation, all the time!

Blaxploitation as a film genre emerged in the United States in the early 1970s. It is a sub-genre of exploitation films. The films were made specifically for an urban black audience, although little 11 year old white boys like myself saw them at the drive-in, and became fans of these films.
