Movie Info

The son of a black prostitute and a white client, Johnny "Folks" O'Brien (Kiel Martin) spends his childhood in the ghetto hearing the hateful name "trick baby," only to realize as an adult just how useful it is to pass for white. Together with his mentor, con man "Blue" Howard (Mel Stewart), Folks succeeds in ripping off many of Philadelphia's wealthy whites with a clever diamond scam. The streak ends, however, when his latest victim turns out to be the father of a local Mafioso.

All Critics (2) | Fresh (2)

  • This wasn't the standard "pimp and ho show" but rather a smart, character based crime flick about two hustlers just trying to survive in the City of Brotherly Love.

    October 1, 2009 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • This confidence drama set on the streets of Philadelphia is charged with issues of race, racism, family, and trust in ways that no other blaxploitation film touches on.
