Friday Foster (1975) comes late in Pam Grier's starring roles in the "blaxploitation" cycle of films. Curiously, it's also based on a comic strip that ran from 1970-74, which I plan to track down. But - as you can see by the release date on the movie, the strip was defunct by the time the movie arrived.
From what I saw on the internet, the strip and movie had some things in common, but reversed the course of Friday's career - making her start as a model and wind up as a photographer/ reporter for Glance Magazine.
