Directed by Gordon Parks | 1971

With Richard Roundtree, Moses Gunn, Charles Cioffi

The blaxploitation sensation that kicked off a wave of Afrocentric crime dramas stars Richard Roundtree as (per the iconic Oscar-garnering theme song) “the black private dick that’s a sex machine to all the chicks.” He roughs up perps left and right while tracking down the kidnapped daughter of Moses Gunn’s Harlem crime kingpin—all backed by Isaac Hayes’ classic, hot-buttered soul soundtrack.
