It tells the story of an African-American private detective, John Shaft, who travels through Harlem and infiltrates TheMafia in order to find the missing daughter of a black mobster. It stars Richard Roundtree as Shaft, Moses Gunn as Bumpy Jonas, Charles Cioffi as Lt. Vic Androzzi, and Christopher St. John as Ben Buford, along with Gwenn Mitchell and Lawrence Pressman. Isaac Hayes did the [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic theme song]] quoted above, which has reached MemeticMutation to the point where it may actually be better known than the movie. It also earned Hayes a "Best Original Song" [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]], the first ever awarded to a Black musician.
