Here is a list of all movies by American actress Pam Grier.

Born on May 26, 1949, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Pamela Suzette Grier has left an indelible mark on American cinema and television. Described by Quentin Tarantino as the first female action star in cinema, Grier rose to fame through her compelling performances in 1970s action, blaxploitation, and women in prison films. Grier's cinematic journey gained momentum with her titular roles in Coffy (1973) and Foxy Brown (1974), where she showcased not only her acting prowess but also her status as a cultural icon. Her filmography of the era includes memorable titles such as The Big Doll House (1971), Women in Cages (1971), The Big Bird Cage (1972), Black Mama White Mama (1973), and Friday Foster (1975). In these films, she broke barriers and redefined the representation of women in film.

However, Grier's influence extends beyond the 1970s. In Quentin Tarantino's crime film Jackie Brown (1997), she portrayed the title character, demonstrating her enduring talent and versatility. Her presence in films like Escape from L.A. (1996), and Mars Attacks! (1996), and Larry Crowne (2011) further solidified her status as a respected actress across decades. Television also witnessed Grier's remarkable contributions. She portrayed Eleanor Winthrop in the Showtime comedy-drama series Linc's (1998–2000), Kate "Kit" Porter on the Showtime drama series The L Word (2004–2009), and Constance Terry in the ABC sitcom Bless This Mess (2019–2020). Her work in the animated series Happily Ever After: Fairy Tales for Every Child (1999) received well-deserved praise.

Beyond her acting career, Grier has been recognized for her heritage, which includes African American, Hispanic, Chinese, Italian, Filipino, and Cheyenne roots. Raised in a military family that moved frequently, she experienced life in various locations, including a period in the United Kingdom. Her upbringing instilled resilience and a global perspective.

IndieWire acknowledged Grier as one of the best actors never to have received an Academy Award nomination, a testament to her impact on the film industry. Whether in action-packed films or compelling television dramas, Pam Grier's contributions have resonated with audiences, making her a trailblazer and an enduring figure in entertainment history.
