Shaft’s Big Score



“Wanna see Shaft ? Better go ask yo’ momma again.”

Shaft really was the African-American answer to the popular James Bond franchise.  John Solie’s action packed artwork; explosions, helicopters, speedboats, car chases and a ‘cool’ hero with a massive gun perfectly showcase this perhaps more than any of the other Shaft movie poster… Shaft’s Big Score! has it all. A classic action adventure poster and one of the defining blaxploitation film franchises of the 1970’s as Richard Roundtree again starred as Private Investigator, John Shaft. This dynamic original 1972 is a treat, a real guilty pleasure. Originally folded (as issued) this unrestored, totally original British poster presents to excellent effect with the bold vibrant, bright and unfaded colours. A scarce poster and certainly the best example of this key blaxploitation poster I have ever seen, let alone have had the pleasure to sell with only the very minimal handling and age wear… This hard to find UK quad movie poster represents a fine piece of very collectable and desirable original film memorabilia.
