    Foxy Brown

    Just like the movie poster says for this pulp '70s classic: Don't mess with the meanest girl in town! This revenge-seeking whole lotta woman posed as a prostitute to shut down a mob-run modeling agency, and in turn save other photogenic ladies from lives of drugs and walking the streets. While her fights often veered into the gory and graphic, we're giving the tough-talking Pam Grier some serious bonus points for her funky-fresh halter tops and iron will. Can you dig it?
