Althea Jones (2007) is a fake grindhouse “trailer for the faux-1974 blaxploitation film” written and directed by David Gabriel and produced by Michael Angelo for Jesus Puzzle in association with Raging Dogs Productions. Submitted for a contest sponsored by the South by Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival to promote the 2007 release of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino’s double feature Grindhouse.

Althea Jones had never lived an easy life! But then one day… So Althea came up with a plan! From producer Michael Angelo and director David Gabriel… Althea Jones! She’s beautiful! She’s bad-ass! She’s Althea Jones!

Not rated. 2:01 run time. Watch the film here …

My thoughts… Althea Jones is awesome retro blaxsploitation inspired by Pam Grier films like Coffy (1973) and Foxy Brown (1974)!
