  • Wednesday February 18, 2015 at 9:30PM

Bizarro is proud to present Black Mama, White Mama (a.k.a.Women in Chains, Chained Women, and Hot, Hard and Mean), a fun subversion of The Defiant Ones. A prostitute in jail on a bum rap (Pam Grier) teams up with an imprisoned revolutionary (Margaret Markov) in attempt to escape their sadistic lesbian warden. Can they overcome their differences in order to save each other? Before Coffy and Foxy Brown, Pam Grier got her start in Women in Prison films, and Black Mama, White Mama is a prime example of both Women in Prison and early Blaxploitation. Shot on location in the Philippines by award-winning director Eddie Romero, it also features fellow future star, Sid Haig.
