Shaft: The TV Movie Collection

He's the coolest private detective around, caught up in all the hottest cases. Can you dig it? Richard Roundtree portrays streetsmart Harlem sleuth John Shaft, reprising the film role he played in three trend-setting movies of the early 1970s.

    Comments about Shaft: The TV Movie Collection:

    VERY RARE, AND LONG OVERDUE !!!! MADE TO ORDER ONLY .... WHICH IS PERFECT BECAUSE THIS WAY THE MARKET ISN'T FLOODED WITH UNUSED SETS, WHICH MAKES MINE JUST THAT MORE VALUABLE. ONLY THEN WOULD THE SHOW BE PROPERLY RECOGNIZED BY TRUE ADMIRERS WHO TRULY KNOW, AND APPRECIATE WHAT THE SHOWS ABOUT. SOME SAY THAT THE SHAFT CHARACTER HAD SOLD OUT BECAUSE OF THIS TV SHOW. WELL, DURING THE MID 70'S, THE BLACK POWER MOVEMENT WAS IN FULL THROTTLE, AND WE DIDN'T WANT A WATERED DOWN CHARACTER. HOWEVER IN HINDSIGHT, YOU CAN'T ALWAYS BE DRESSED IN BLACK LEATHER, AND USING THE STREET AS YOUR ONLY RESOURCE ... IT LIMITS YOUR CHARACTER SEVERELY. AND FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT REMEMBER, YOU ALREADY HAD THE KOJAK, AND BARETTA TV SERIES BASED OUT OF NEW YORK TO COMPETE WITH DURING THIS TIME. HIS CHARACTER WASN'T ONE DIMENSIONAL, AND TO KEEP HIM IN HARLEM SUGGESTS THAT HE'S JUST INTELLIGENT ENOUGH TO STAY IN HARLEM. AND THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN DEEMED AS RACIST, AND RIGHTLY SO. AND WHY NIT SELL A SMOOTH, INTELLIGENT, WELL DRESSED, TOUGH, GOOD LOOKING AFRICAN-AMERICAN MAN TO THE MASSES? VERY WELL WRITTEN STORIES, AND PLOT, WELL DIRECTED, AND CASTED .... I KNEW I MADE THE THE RIGHT CHOICE TO RELIVE MY FAVORITE CHARACTER ALL OVER AGAIN .......... SHAFT !!!!

      Comments about Shaft: The TV Movie Collection:

      Wonderful collection for fans of the early 1970s Shaft (Richard Roundtree). Shaft had to be toned down a bit for TV, and relies on superior intelligence rather than superior firepower
