About this item
"Hotter than Bond. Cooler than Bullitt," movie posters proclaimed. 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(R)-winning Best Original Song and Oscar(R)-nominated score. 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. Gordan Parks directs from a screenplay that Ernest Tidyman (that same year's Oscar(R)-winner for "The French Connection") co-scripted from his own novel. John Shaft is an icon of change from an era of change. Today, Shaft still tells it like it is.
