HARTFORD-DAVIS, Robert. The Take.
Columbia Pictures, 1974. Original movie poster. Although it might seem on first glance to be a blaxploitation picture, The Take is instead a straight-ahead crime thriller that just happens to star a black man, the inimitable Billy Dee Williams. He plays an unabashedly crooked cop who accepts payoffs from criminals even as he endeavors to bring them down. Onetime Beach Blanket Bingo dreamboat Frankie Avalon playing a small-time hood in a minor role, And in the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it department, voluptuous ’70s starlet Kathy Baumann shows up for a wordless supporting role as Avalon’s squeeze. A near fine example, creased where folded as issued. measures approx. 41″ by 27″.
