The Candy Tangerine Man is a 1975[1] American action-adventure blaxploitation film[2] starring John Daniels, Eli Haines and Tom Hankason. Distributed by Moonstone Entertainment,[3] it follows the story of the powerful "Black Baron" (Daniels), both a pimp and a doting father. The film was directed and produced by Matt Cimber and written by Mikel Angel under the pseudonym of George Theakos.[4]


A successful Los Angeles-based businessperson, doting father of two and a loving husband, Ron Lewis (John Daniels) turns into a completely different self at night – his alter ego, the "Black Baron", a prominent, powerful and feared pimp; but after killing two racist police officers in his pursuit, the Baron realises that his pimping days are numbered.
