A.K.A. Cassius Clay

Filmed a few years before the famous 1974 "Rumble in the Jungle," this documentary looks at Muhammad Ali's career during the 1960s. Beginning with his emergence as an up-and-coming boxer, the film uses archival footage -- some quite rare -- and interviews to trace the legendary fighter's career up to his 1967 suspension for defying the draft. Malcolm X, Joe Louis and -- naturally -- Ali himself comment on his dazzling career in the ring.
