Long before his tenure on TV's Magnum PI, Roger E. Mosley starred in the blaxploitationer Sweet Jesus, Preacher Man. Mosely plays a streetwise mobster who goes undercover as a ghetto clergyman. This he does at the request of his boss, who wants to get the goods on a rival. "Preacher Man" has a change of heart along the way, but not before whuppin' some butt. The fact that Sweet Jesus, Preacher Man was distributed by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer was overlooked in the otherwise all-inclusive coffee-table volume The MGM Story.
