R.I.P Cleopatra Jones
The NY Daily News is reporting that black female action hero, Tamara Dobson who played the kung fu fighting, platform shoe-sporting title character in the blaxploitation movie "Cleopatra Jones," has died. She was 59.
Tamara died Monday night from complications of pneumonia and multiple sclerosis.
A few years ago, there was talk of a "Cleopatra Jones" remake with Whitney Houston in the lead role but due to Houston's problems, the project never happened. Rest In Peace Miss Dobson.
