Hell Up in Harlem is a 1973 Blaxploitation movie about a gangster who is in danger of losing everything he's built. In this sequel to the cult classic "Little Caesar," Harlem kingpin Joey Gibbs (Fred Williamson) finds himself caught between the corrupt District Attorney DiAngelo (Gerald Gordon) and the Mafia. After a DiAngelo ordered hit on Tommy goes awry, Tommy teams up with his father, Papa Gibbs (Julius Harris) to save his empire and get back at the men who want him dead. While Tommy is convalescing from the injuries he sustained during the hit, he has to contend with his cheating wife, Helen (Gloria Hendry) and his backstabbing, disgruntled second-in-command Zach (Tony King). Tommy feels that he has sacrificed too much to merely succumb to the whims of a gang of thugs. After some reorganizing and strategizing, Tommy comes back strong. He is now prepared to exact his own brand of revenge against everyone who has wronged him.
