Trailer Trash XLVIII: Bucktown (Fred Williamson, 1975)

"Where the chicks are on the make, the cops are on the take, and the welcoming committee is a sawed-off shotgun!"

In the same tradition as Bubba Smith, Jim Brown, O.J. Simpson, Rosey Grier and soon (shudder) Michael Strahan, Fred Williamson was a star football player who traded in his cleats for, um, acting shoes. One of the most prolific of the bunch, Fred Williamson's had more than 100 screen appearances over his 40-year career.

The bulk of Fred's body work includes some of the best-known blaxploitation flicks of the 1970s. Bucktown puts him on screen with blaxploitation legend Pam Grier.

Be prepared for some trailer-rapping:
