Five female athletes are kidnapped during an international track meet in "Hong Kong," then fight their way to freedom after being recaptured several times. Considered a minor classic of the blaxploitation genre, Ebony, Ivory & Jade stars Rosanne Katon as track star Pam Rogers, the eponymous "Ebony" of the title. Colleen Camp co-stars as Ginger "Ivory" Douglas, her privileged track and field white rival. Sylvia Anderson appears as Jackie, a.k.a. "Jade."
Admired by director Quentin Tarantino, the film is referenced in Pulp Fiction by Uma Thurman's character, who speaks about her role in an unsuccessful television series called Fox Force Five. The trailer for Ebony, Ivory & Jade also used the phrase "roaring rampage of revenge", a phrase used to describe Kill Bill: Volume 1 and referred to in the opening of Kill Bill: Volume 2.
