SHAFT (Jan 13, 1971) Film script by Ernest Tidyman, John D. F. Black$3,500.00
[Hollywood]: MGM, 1971. Vintage original film script, 11 x 8 5/8″ (28 x 22 cm.), printed wrappers, 116 pp. mimeograph, with revisions on various colors of paper dated up through 1/21/71. Just about fine.
The classic film directed by Gordon Parks and starring Richard Roundtree, a movie which dramatically jump started 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.” (Bogle, Blacks in American Film, p. 185.) Parish and Hill 175.
