Nerd Girl of Note #17

Who is it? Pam Grier
Websites IMDb Entry
Why do nerds love her?
She's one of the baddest, funkiest chicks out there!

Pam Grier is most famous for her '70s films such as Coffy, Foxy Brown, and a favorite of mine, Friday Foster. To younger audiences she is known for Jackie Brown. Aside from the blaxploitaion genre, Grier has done considerable work. She appeared briefly in Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, did several Women in Prison movies, both as prisoner and sadistic warden, and was in Escape from LA as "Hershe Las Palmas"—a transvestite warlord (forgive me if transvestite is not correct, I have not seen the movie in years).

I forgot to mention her as the psychotic-junkie-cop-killing-hooker in Fort Apache the Bronx. I don't think she says ten words, but has a great presence.

They keep talking about remaking Coffy or Foxy Brown but you can't outdo Pam Grier, especially when she still looks good enough to play the roles herself!
