Black Brigade ★★ Carter's Army 1969

Pryor and Williams star in this low budget movie as leaders of an all-black outfit assigned to a suicide mission behind Nazi lines during WWII. Their force wreaks havoc and earns them the respect of military higher-ups. Lots of action and climactic finish. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Stephen Boyd, Robert Hooks, Susan Oliver, Roosevelt “Rosie” Grier, Moses Gunn, Richard Pryor, Billy Dee Williams; D: George McCowan; W: Aaron Spelling; M: Fred Steiner.
