I'm much more of a baseball fan than a boxing fan, but...

If you want a doc instead of the overlong and somewhat misguided "ALI",
William Klein's documentary on Ali that just came out through Facets has some
wonderful moments -- especially with the Louisville Syndicate that was
backing him early on. Though, I have to say, "When We Were Kings" is the best
of all the films on Ali.

"Your hands can't hit what your eyes can't see,
Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee.
Rumble young man, Rumble!"

(Once met Ali in a men's room when Kino was at the Fisk Building on 57th
Street and Butch Lewis Productions was right next door to us.)

And then, there's The Hurricane, The Great White Hope, etc.
