Tarantino clearly had Bobby Womack’s song, “Across 110th Street,” in mind from the beginning. What great timing throughout! Pam Grier enters the shot as the singing starts…the title wipes across the screen, 70’s style, as the chorus starts…Grier walks across the airport in perfect step with music. It’s expert choreography without any dancing!
Beyond the technical aspects of these credits, the sequence communicates quite a bit about the film’s title character. It shows a confidence and tells that audience exactly who is in charge for the next few hours.
