Commentary:Teresa Graves
In the words of Christie Love: "Watch Out Sugar!"

In commerating on a television legend,Teresa Graves was the first of many black actresses to play to lead of a police officer who was also an undercover cop who used her street smarts to catch the baddies and to also get herself out of danger situations. Her favorite ploy was to pretend that she was helpless when confronted by muggers,rapists,and others who were braking the law,but the surprising effect that she used was to get back her allies with some breathtaking martial arts skills on them with was the highlight of this short-lived series.

The show was called "Get Christie Love" which first started out as a feature length film which was produced by David L.Wolper,who went on to produced several others successful shows including the mulitple Emmy winning "Roots". The TV series of the same title(produced by Wolper) ran on ABC-TV from 1974-75. The pilot series was a huge ratings winner which was the result of ABC's Movie Of The Week when it premiered in the fall of 1974. Unfortunately,the show was very good in some of the episodes(which produced 22 episodes),but certain wisecracks and heavy action sequences(which may the show more interesting to watch)weren't enough to keep on the air for more than one season(despicted low ratings). If this were remade as a big screen feature for a remake,the producers many considered for actress Vivica A. Fox for the part(HANDS DOWN!)of Christie.....

About the actress Teresa Graves...........

The reason that I'm commenting on this series is that Miss Graves was a pioneer at what she did for TV back in the 60's and 70's. As most people may not know about her,she was a regular feature on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In,which ran on NBC-TV from 1968-72,and was one of the members of the highly popular psychedelic singing group during her status with Laugh-In. She starred in several feature films before giving up her acting career altogether for religious purposes in the mid-1970's and throughout the 1980's. A lady and style and substance. She will be truly missed. R.I.P.

She passed away of natural causes on October,11,2002 at the age of 54.
