Tamara Dobson stars as Cleopatra Jones in Jack Starrett's blaxploitation programmer that, in its own way, deals effectively with the ravages of drugs in inner-city black communities. Cleopatra Jones is a jive female James Bond, a special drug agent for the United States government who wears sleek and hip clothes, drives a fancy car with a submachine-gun compartment in the front door, and travels all over the world to stomp out drugs at their source. Cleopatra has a loving relationship with Ruben (Bernie Casey), the well-meaning head of a drug rehabilitation clinic in Los Angeles. When Cleopatra travels to Turkey to oversee the destruction of poppy fields owned by Mommy (Shelley Winters) -- a lesbian drug dealer -- Mommy becomes upset. She exacts her revenge on Cleopatra by having the police close down Ruben's drug clinic. Nevertheless, Cleopatra continues to wreak havoc upon Mommy's drug business, and Mommy continues to try to do Cleopatra in, until finally there is a major confrontation between Cleopatra and Mommy and her minions. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi

WOW! Tamara Dobson is beautiful, stylish and tough. Bernie Casey, well, he is so handsome. What a movie, plenty butt kicking and fashion galore!! Tamara Dobson was truly HOT & SEXY! This was one of the best movies of the 70's and Tamara Dobson was an African Queen, she definitely reigned in this movie. If you don't remember Tamara Dobson and want a great 70's movie then I recommend you see Cleopatra Jones!
It brought back memories, when I was a pre-teen, I still think Cleopatra Jone (Tamara Dobson) is the greatest. When stationed in Korea 1980, went to a movie in the village, they thought I was Cleopatra Jones. I will never meet her standards. Keep on with the Keep on!!!!
