Cool Breeze

‘Shaft,’ it is not.

MGM's marketing campaign for 1972's Cool Breeze played up — if not centered around — a connection to Shaft. That connection? Both were blaxploitation films released by MGM. I guess audiences thought that wasn't enough of a lure, because Breeze is an obscure entry in the genre, just now seeing the light of DVD, courtesy of the Warner Archive archivists.
