Gordon Parks (director) SHAFT (Jan 13, 1971) Film script


[Hollywood]: 1971. Vintage original film script, 11 x 8 5/8″ (28 x 22 cm.), 116 pp. Printed wrappers, mimeograph, brad bound. Blank back wrapper torn and detached. Just about fine in very good- wrappers.

The classic film directed by Gordon Parks and starring Richard Roundtree, a movie which dramatically jumpstarted the Blaxploitation cycle.

“Parks’ strong identification with Shaft as a slick, pretty, sexy dude gives the picture unexpected heat and zip; it’s doubtful any white director would have taken as much relish in the hero’s derring-do.” (Donald Bogle, Blacks in American Film, p. 185.) Parish and Hill 175.
