I'd suggest Saturday Night Fever, Superfly, & Deliverance.
And to answer another question (I think it was on this list server, though
I could easily be confused as this film is all the rage everywhere):
Martin & Lewis is Vanilla, Amos & Andy is Chocolate (or maybe just vanilla
with some brown food coloring added).
