“Does for ‘Pop Goes the Weasel’ what CHUNGKING EXPRESS did for ‘California Dreamin'.” -- Matt Lynch, Letterboxd
A charming time capsule of ‘70s casino culture coated with a blaxploitation candy shell, LADY COCOA stars singer/dancer/actress Lola Falana, who at one time was the highest-paid female performer in Vegas. In the same year she was Tony-nominated for “Doctor Jazz”, Lola starred in this upbeat caper set at the real-life King’s Castle casino and hotel.
From Matt Cimber, one of the most diverse of all genre filmmakers, whose career included everything from horror to family films. Sidebar: he’s also director of the vintage 1980s female wrestling TV show “G.L.O.W.”!
