Detectives “Gravedigger” Jones (Godfrey Cambridge) and “Coffin Ed” Johnson (Raymond St. Jacques) are on the case and in everyone’s face when they investigate Rev. Deke O’Malley (Calvin Lockhart) – a brother whose “Back To Africa” campaign is nothing more than a big scam for bigga’ bucks. But when $87,000 of O’Malley’s laundered cash gets stashed in a bail of cotton, Gravedigger and Coffin find they’re not the only dudes suddenly interested in soaring cotton prices! Trailing the bale all over Harlem, the detectives come up against the mafia, the police, black militants and more in an all-out dash to nab $87,000 cash – and to 86 anyone who stands in their way!
