King: A Filmed Record…Montgomery to Memphis

United States | 1970 | Sidney Lumet, Joseph L. Mankiewicz

King: A Filmed Record…Montgomery to Memphis

The life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the monumental events of the Civil Rights movement have largely been reduced to a handful of familiar film clips and sound bites. This epic documentary, produced by Ely Landau and newly restored to its long unseen, complete and uncut version, paints a sweeping, detailed picture of the years 1955 to 1968 via extensive archival news footage. Includes some complete speeches by Dr. King, as well as stirring testimonials by movie stars of the era (Harry Belafonte, Ruby Dee, Paul Newman, Burt Lancaster, et al.). Selected for the National Film Registry in 1999.

185 min. Blu-ray.
