    A buxom beauty, undercover narcotics agent Cleopatra Jones (Tamara Dobson)

    is the principal operative in a covert scheme to eradicate an international drug trade. She's pulled away from important business when a phony raid on her boyfriend's ghetto halfway house puts the place in jeopardy. The source of her domestic troubles is Mommy, a raunchy underworld eccentric who uses her connections with bad cops on the force to cause trouble for Cleopatra's friends and set her up for an attack. With its non-stop action and hit soundtrack featuring a title track sung by Millie Jones, CLEOPATRA JONES is as fun to watch as it is culturally significant.
