This film was directed by Gordon Parks, and stars Richard Roundtree, Moses Gunn and Charles Cioffi. Roundtree plays the cool private eye, John Shaft, who is hired by Bumpy, the crime boss (Moses Gunn) to get back his kidnapped daughter. This poster was signed by Richard Roundtree at a private signing. It is rare for anyone to have an original film poster signed, as the majority of signatures are on pieces of paper, photographs and video/dvd sleeves. It is unusual to have the film's poster with you when you try to obtain signatures.
