Johnny Tough (1974)


Tough / Johnny Tough

Director: Horace Jackson
Stars: Dion Gossett, Christopher Townes, Renny Roker, Rich Holmes, Sandy Reed, Guy Badger, Beverly Daniel, Sam Dickerman

Johnny Tough is a "blaxploitation" film tempered by a social consciousness. Dion Gossett plays a young urban African-American. Gossett continually rebels against the white establishment, as represented by his teacher. The boy finds he can expect no back-up of his attitude at home, where his parents wallow in self-indulgence, so he feels that a show of force is his only option. Renny Roker and Sandy Reed also appear in this film. Not quite as violent as most films in its genre, Johnny Tough was consigned to the Late Late Show circuit as soon as it finished its initial theatrical run.

On a ship bound for Genoa is a small Paduan boy, covered in rags, who has been sold by his parents to a company of acrobats and been forced to do all the work in the circus.

Retiring to his bunk, he dreams of a decent meal, a new jacket and bringing the rest of the money home to his parents, so poor they had to sell him. But when by chance he hears those travelers, chatting with each other, gossiping about Italy and the Italians, he dosn’t hesitate to throw his money back in their faces, shouting “I will not accept alms from those who insult my country."
