This ground breaking detective picture features Isaac Hayes' Oscar-winning theme song and stars Richard Roundtree ("Seven," "Shaft's Big Score") as John Shaft, a street-wise black detective hired to find the beautiful kidnapped daughter of powerful Harlem mobster, Moses Gunn ("Ragtime," "Heartbreak Ridge"). Helmed by award-winning director Gordon Parks ("The Learning Tree," "Leadbelly"), its huge commercial success spawned two sequels and a TV series.
