Check out Mr. Mean

Apparently I was too busy during the ’70s going to class, but I missed a Fred Williamson movie called Mr.  Mean until Sunday night.  It had the Ohio Players giving a slammin’ soundtrack as Fred did his thing against some gangsters in Rome, while loving all the Italian women.

Maybe I’ve got a one-track mind, but my thoughts turned to the entrepreneurship of Fred Williamson, who was executive producer and star long before it became vogue in Hollywood. That meant the Ohio Players could score it.  I don’t think they’ve done many scores since then, which is a loss to movie fans everywhere.

Bottom line was, as the man in charge, he got to decide that his character would live and love and walk away smiling.

So, if you’re thinking about going into business, go to the video store and check out Mr. Mean.
