Movie Ad of the Week: MEAN AND BLACK (1975) and MEAN AND BLACK (1979)

MEAN AND BLACK was a title used in 1975 for an action track re-release of GIRLS ARE FOR LOVING, the third 'Ginger' adventure starring Cheri Caffaro. Above and below: Tampa, FL - May 1, 1975.

In this case the title referred to Caffaro's co-star, actor and former pro football player Timothy Brown, but four years later...

...the handle was used again for a re-release of the 1967 spaghetti western LOLA COLT, starring Lola Falana, which had already toured drive-ins and action theaters as BLACK TIGRESS in 1976. Above is a lurid ad from its Shreveport, Louisiana opening on June 1, 1979.
An AGFA print of LOLA COLT sporting the MEAN AND BLACK title was shown at the Alamo Drafthouse Yonkers as part of their monthly Temple of Schlock series on February 28, 2016.
