Johnny Tough

He’s bad… he’s black… he’s beautiful… and tough! And that’s no jive. Johnny Tough is an extremely rare, socially conscious Blaxploitation update of François Truffaut’s The 400 Blows, transporting the story to the desolate urban sprawl of ‘70s Los Angeles to follow a mischievous kid and his constant clashes at school, and on the street, with the white establishment.

“Four decades later, Tough might not be the best made or known Blaxploitation feature ever made, but it remains one of the most interesting films of the genre.” – Michael A. Gonzales, Ebony
