Movie Ads of the Week: HELL UP IN HARLEM vs. THAT MAN BOLT (both 1973)
How big of a star was Fred Williamson on Friday, December 21, 1973? Big enough for two of his action vehicles to open in New York on the same day! American International unveiled HELL UP IN HARLEM, their quickie sequel to BLACK CAESAR, opposite Universal's internationally shot karate/superspy flick THAT MAN BOLT. The Daily News even pitted the two films against each other by running their opening day ads on the same page.
