SHAFT (1971) Press kit


Vintage original 11 ½ x 9″(29 x 23 cm.) press kit, USA. Richard Roundtree, dir: Gordon Parks; MGM. Quarto, printed folder with die-cut window, twenty-three (23) 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white print still photos, 11, 4, 2, 2, 2, 3, 2, 1, 3 pp., slight bumping to outer edges of folder, overall fine in near fine covers.

SHAFT remains one of the defining films of the Blaxploitation movement. The printed text appropriately talks about “NEW MARKET FOR FILMS”, as this film emerges precisely at the moment when African American cinema is beginning to emerge.

The set of photos is a very extensive archive of images from this classic film, and it contains a portrait of director Gordon Parks. This press kit is exceedingly scarce.
