Blaxploitation meets Women-out-of-prison in this genre-bender! Sultry pop chanteuse Lola Falana (the "First Lady of Las Vegas") plays unjustly-imprisoned soul sister Coco, who earns a day's furlough at a Lake Tahoe hotel-casino--shot on location in winter--en route to turn state's evidence against her mob boyfriend. With lumbering hitman "Mean" Joe Green on her tail, Coco relies on sex, sass, and blind luck to get her through the day. Obviously shot on a shoestring budget, Lady Cocoa nonetheless features dynamic camerawork and an amazing action set piece, and Millie Perkins steals the show in her supporting role.
