Foxy: My Life in Three Acts by Pam Grier with Andrea Cagan is full of wonderful anecdotes like the time Grier, John Lennon and his entourage were kicked out of a club thanks to Lennon’s drunken outburst; then there’s Pam on the set of Roger Corman’s The Arena riding an out of control black stallion through the lots of Rome’s Cinecittta studios only to crash through one of Federico Fellini’s sets, (he brushed her off and taught her how to make tomato sauce); and being stalked by Sammy Davis, Jr. at when she was a guest at his dinner party, and Grier’s stories of rooming with Tamara Dobson of Cleopatra Jones fame—oh, to have been a fly on that wall…this slideshow features photos from the memoir with candid captions from the iconic Grier herself.
