Shaft - the original


Starring: Richard Roundtree, Moses Gunn

Director: Gordon Parks

Hotter than Bond. Cooler than Bullitt. John Shaft was indeed a shut your mouth detective to reckon with, a fact emphasized from the film's start by Isaac Hayes' Academy Award winning Best Original Song and Oscar nominated score. Shaft was the first with the most, widely cited as the first Blaxploitation movie. Richard Roundtree plays the smart, tough, confident lead, a private investigator whose hunt for a kidnapped woman puts him in the middle of feuding syndicates. Renowned photojournalist Gordon Parks directs, working from a screenplay that Ernest Tidyman co-scripted from his own novel.
