Tamara Dobson Returns?

tamara_dobson
If you haven't seen Cleopatra Jones in action, then you probably don't know who Tamara Dobson is. The model-turned-actress starred in the successful Cleopatra Jones action films in the early 1970s and disappeared from the film and television scene altogether shortly after. Along with Richard Roundtree (Shaft) and Pam Grier (Foxy Brown), Tamara Dobson was the equivalent of a superhero to action fans of the era.


Rumors have it that Tamara Dobson will return to the screen in an upcoming Rudy Ray Moore Dolemite film but with Rudy's recent health issues, we're not sure if this one will ever see the light of day.

In the meantime, if you'd like to see Tamara Dobson again (or for the first time), we'd recommend renting Cleopatra Jones or Cleopatra Jones and the Casino Gold.


filmsThe Casino Gold film is a Cocoa Lounge favorite. How often do you get to see an action flick starring an African American woman filmed on location in Hong Kong? Correct us if we're wrong, but we don't think that has happened since 1975.

I used to watch these old movies when they came on tv on the weekends when I was a kid. Shaft Foxy Brown, Dolemite, Superfly Cleopatra all of those and I got most of them on DVD now. They should get them all together for some kind of reunion movie with Pam, Tamra, Richard Roundtree, Huggy bear, Jim Kelly, Jim Brown, Dolemite, Max Julien, man all those cats. That would be a movie.

I met Tamara Dobson as a child at a NATRA convention in Antigua, West Indies and was just blow away by her presense, smile and willingness to say "HI" to a kid! May her soul rest in peace....

She was lovely to look at and to admire. She was a lady.

Rest in peach, honey.

Poets and artists have worshiped beauty for thousands of years. In fact, the concept of beauty is so well internalized in the human psyche that even newborn infants prefer to see a more attractive face.

Thanks for supporting the idea of 360 degree feedback. I’ve seen it create division in senior teams when handled incorrectly and seen transformation happen when used elegantly. It’s all about the intention and skill of those who facilitate the process.
