"I actually did not watch it once I became aware that it was not the film I was looking for. Amazon made a mistake in listing William Klein as the Director - so beware. Through some investigating I've determined that the DVD I intended to purchase is a documentary titled "Ali The Greatest: 1964-1974." I've seen clips of it and have read many very favorable reviews - it looks outstanding..."
A Must have

"Muhammad Ali always Moved me as a fighter&just the way the Brother spoke His mind.this Film was very direct&took clips over His Career mixed in with where He was.when it comes to Muhammad Ali you always watch if it's a Film or if it's a Book you read it. he is the Greatest."
Genuine, valuable time capsule

"William Klein presents more of just a collection of footage than a narrated over-blown documentary, the early days (right before the first Liston fight) then at the second Liston fight, then in 1974 in Africa, aned I like it that way. We're able to see raw footage, most never seen before, including video of the Beatles hamming it up with Ali (before now I've seen only photographs. Klein also takes us into a Harlem high school class where kids are discussing Ali, we meet the millionaire men who guided Ali's early career, and so much more which serves as a genuine, valuable time capsule.
Also here on film is Ali doing hismost peculiar bit: while in Africa, training, sometimes he'd pretend the sparring partner was Foreman, and that he was in the big fight, losing! He'd even go so far as to fall down twice, and be counted out! Then he'd get up and say 'just kidding'....Wow.. The man was SO CONFIDENT he would even tempt fate!"
