28 Stunning Photos of Pam Grier in the 1970s

Born 1949 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, American actress Pam Grier became known in the early 1970s for starring in a string of 1970s women in prison and blaxploitation films such as The Big Bird Cage, Coffy, Foxy Brown, and Sheba, Baby.


Grier starred as the titular character in Quentin Tarantino's 1997 crime film Jackie Brown, for which she received a Satellite Award and a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress. She has also been nominated for a SAG Award.

For six seasons, Grier portrayed Kate "Kit" Porter on the Showtime television series The L Word, which ran from 2004 until 2009. She received an Emmy nomination for her work in the animated program Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child. Tarantino said that she may have been cinema's first female action star.

In 2010 Grier wrote her memoir, Foxy: My Life in Three Acts, with Andrea Cagan. In January 2018, Grier revealed a biopic based on her book is in the works titled, Pam.

Grier received an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore in 2011. That same year, she received an honorary Doctorate of Science from Langston University.

  1. If you Google the word "Blaxploitation", it comes up with a photo of Pam Grier.
    She is a GREAT actress, but has not shown any intellectual or socially aware discretion in choosing her roles whatsoever. To laud her as some sort of racial exemplar is quite dishonest, and ultimately counter-productive.

    1. Back in the '70s black female actresses were lucky to get any main character roles whatsoever. There were also black male actors who went from "blaxploitation" roles to more legit roles. Expecting people to turn down work during a time when it was pretty much the only work available to them is demonstrating a severe lack of perspective.

  2. I'm glad you included the picture of her in the wetsuit, no doubt a promo shot for Sheba Baby. One of the sexiest moments in cinematic history is when she unzips her wetsuit, to entice Shark. The way she parts the sides of the zipper and that look on her face. O! M! G!!!!!!!
