Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Pam Grier is one of Denver's greatest exports, and last fall, Robin Edwards pulled together the "Top 5 ass-kicking Pam Grier roles" -- among them her performance in Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown.

But Juror169 has a a problem with Grier's off-screen roles. Here's the verdict:

So she did nothing as Kareem became muslim and hooked up with criminals, Prinze drugged up, Pryor freebased, Davis acted as an asshole and her own sister denied pain medicine.

yeah such a great person!

Off-screen actions aside, how would you judge Grier's acting resume?
