Gordon Parks was a black African American director, writer, musician, and photographer from the 1940s to the 2000s. He born in Kansas in 1912, the youngest of 15 children, and his family was very poor. After a series of menial jobs including train porter, he took up photography, and from 1948 to 1968 he contributed photo-essays to Life Magazine, often about civil rights, and about the effects of poverty. In 1969 he wrote an autobiography about his youth, The Learning Tree, and he wrote, directed, produced and composed the music for the film adaptation, which is considered to be the first mainstream movie from a major studio directed by an African American. Two years later he directed one of the first blaxploitation movies, and likely the most successful and best-remembered, Shaft, plus its first sequel, Shaft's Big Score. In 1989, when the U.S. Library of Congress picked the first 25 films to be preserved in the National Film Registry, The Learning Tree was one of those selected. Parks passed away in 2006 at the age of 93.
Important Added Info: Note that this still has been personally autographed (signed) by Gordon Parks! Also note that this still appears in every way to be original U.S. release EXCEPT that there is one very tiny line of French type in the lower right. It reads, "IMPRIME AUX ETATS-UNIS D'AMERIQUE". A collector has told us that he believes this means the still was used in French speaking parts of Canada, but it was printed in the U.S., and that makes complete sense to us! So it is an original still from , but it was printed for use in parts of Canada. If anyone knows more about this, please e-mail us and we will post it here.

Note that our consignor purchased this item in a large collection of memorabilia, and he can provide no information about how the autograph was obtained, but we believe it to be genuine.

Condition: very good.
