I totally forgot about the wealth of blaxploitation films that came out, along with some brilliant soundtracks.

Tim already listed Shaft and Sweet Sweetbacks Badass Song; I would like to add Accross 110th St, Black Caesar (with a brilliant funk soundtrack from James Brown including Down and Out in NYC and The Boss), Cleopatra Jones, Foxy Brown, Slaughter (another James Brown classic soundtrack) Superfly (brilliant track from Curtis Mayfield - Pusherman) and Truck Turner (Isaac Hayes with another cracking theme tune).

Away from blaxploitation, Lalo Schiffrin did some brilliant work with Don Siegel in Dirty Harry and Magnum Force:

- what a bassline that comes in for Scorpios Theme

- brilliant buildup music and a great song to drive fast to....

Also, Alex - 3 great performances there. I would like to counter with

1. Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman in Kramer vs Kramer
2. Christopher Walken in The Deer Hunter
3. John Cazale in Godfather 2
