Cleopatra Jones and the Casino of Gold (1975)

When fellow narcotics agents (and brothers) Matthew (Albert Popwell) and Melvin Johnson (Caro Kenyatta) disappear during an undercover mission in Hong Kong, ass-kicking secret agent Cleopatra Jones (former model Tamara Dobson) travels there to find them.

With the help of local detective Mi Ling (Tanny), Cleopatra discovers that her friends’ disappearance has to do with “the Dragon Lady” (Stella Stevens), a much-feared blonde “lipstick lesbian” who runs a Macao casino and controls a major chunk of the local drug trade.

This sequel to Cleopatra Jones (1973) is a slight improvement over its predecessor because Dobson is a bit more comfortable onscreen and the addition of goofy elements like extended kung-fu fights and a campy supporting turn by future Three’s Company guy Normal Fell increase watchability.
