Shaft's Big Score

January 26 at 4:00
East Building Auditorium

Building on the global commercial success of Shaft, Shaft’s Big Score raised the bar for the crime-fighting genre with pyrotechnics and even more adrenaline-rousing, high-speed chase scenes. Richard Roundtree’s tough, skilled detective invited visions of a James Bond-like franchise, and this sequel showcases an even more heroic John Shaft, intent on solving the mystery of a friend’s murder and the delivery of a small fortune intended for an inner-city children’s center. (1972, 106 minutes)
