|When We Were Kings|
When the 1974 heavyweight championship prize fight between reigning title holder George Foreman and challenger Muhammad Ali was delayed by six weeks in Zaire, it unexpectedly offered director Leon Gast unprecedented time and access to Ali.
His charisma, intelligence and wit allowed Gast to shape a fascinating document that goes beyond the event to also reveal the man.
Co-narrated by Spike Lee, Norman Mailer and George Plimpton, When We Were Kings
won the Oscar for Best Documentary.
