Directed by: Frank Packard
Actors: J. Walter Smith, Tobar Mayo, Roxie Young
Also known as: Abar: Black Superman, In Your Face
Description: An African-American doctor Abar (J. Walter Smith) takes drastic measures to protect his family from the harassment of his bigoted neighbors by hiring a bodyguard (Tobar Mayo), injecting him with an experimental serum and transforming him into a civil rights superman. Despite its high camp value, this vintage piece of blaxploitation tackles real social issues of the day and carries a positive message of nonviolence.
