Soul man. Action hero. Chef. Isaac Hayes' unpredictable career as an entertainer took him all over the pop-culture map
''Soul Man'' (1967)
As a Stax Records songwriter for hire, Hayes and his partner David Porter co-wrote a series of smashes for Sam & Dave, including this classic which some 40 years later would be echoed in the title of Hayes' final movie, Soul Men.
