Shaft (1971)

Director: Gordon Parks Run Time: 100 min. Format: 35mm Release Year: 1971

Starring: Charles Cioffi, Christopher St. John, Gwenn Mitchell, Moses Gunn, Richard Roundtree

The movie that set the tone for an entire genre. Cool private dick John Shaft is hired by a crime lord to find and retrieve his kidnapped daughter. Gordon Parks directed and Richard Roundtree stars in this good-time, gritty NYC caper with maybe the most famous soundtrack of all time. Shaft! You’re damn right.
