" Uptown, downtown, all through the Underworld, Shaft takes you where the action is! Fast, tough-as-nails, here is one of
the hardest hard-boiled detective movies ever made. Acclaimed for its raw, exciting look at street-life, this tense,
absorbing film features Richard Roundtree as John Shaft, the steady private-eye who takes on The Mob. Pulsating to the
beat of Isaac Hayes' hot, Oscar-winning score, Shaft is ultra-smooth entertainment at its hard-hitting best!
Hired by a Harlem mobster to find his kidnapped teenage daughter, Shaft finds himself up against some Mafia chieftans
who want to take over a chunk of the Black Underworld's uptown territory. The kidnapping is only part of the mobsters'
scheme, but Shaft, caught in a squeeze between Harlem and Little Italy, comes up with a deadly squeeze play of his own!
Directed by renowned photographer Gordon Parks, Shaft starts off at a swift, action-packed tempo and never lets up from
there. "Exquisite...any tough-detective devotee ought to grab for Shaft, the most beautifully photographed private-eye
adventure-movie I can recall!" (Judith Crist, The New Yorker) "Very entertaining...the kind of movie to which any
audience can respond!" (New York Times) "
