Priceless documentary footage highlights this classic portrait of Ali.
Of all the films and books about him, is among the most highly praised portraits of the prizefighter formerly known as Cassius Clay. Through priceless documentary footage spanning Ali's 1964 fight with Sonny Liston and his comeback in 1974 (the famous "Rumble in the Jungle"), Klein's extraordinarily vivid look places Ali against the backdrop of mid-1960s America, highlighting the champ's real and symbolic contributions to the civil rights upheavals of that day. With appearances by Malcolm X, George Foreman, the Beatles, and Norman Mailer. (120 mins.)
