Chris Munger directed this 1974 blaxploitation version of the popular skinflick Starlet!…1969. The story concerns Clara, Juanita Brown, an aspiring actress from the housing projects of Gary, Indiana, who goes to Hollywood in search of fame and fortune.

Predictably, she is robbed, betrayed, and must hit the casting couch before her dreams can come true. Juanita Brown also appeared in Caged Heat, Foxy Brown and Willie Dynamite.

This film may fall short in many categories but the poster is hot and the is in the collection of The Museum of UnCut Funk.
