"KING",

Peace Prize winner Dr. Martin Luther King,
Jr.

Nominated for nine Emmy Awards, this
"astute and compelling" (Variety) biography,
based on the remarkable life of Nobel
Peace Prize winner Dr. Martin Luther King,
Jr., takes an intimate look at one of the
world's most public heroes during one of
the most tumultuous times in American
history starring Paul Winfield, Cicely Tyson and Ossie Davis, "King" is
a riveting tale that appropriately honors a true legend. The original
theatrical release was 1978.

In 1950s-60s America, the civil rights movement found its leader in a
Southern Baptist minister. Using lyrical eloquence, Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr., motivated masses of people - black and white - to demand
equality by way of nonviolent protest.

In spite of his peaceful agenda, Dr. King was often the target of terrible
violenc, but he was never swayed from his path of nonviolent
preachings' however; by the time he was assassinated in 1968, Dr.
King had already defined a dream that would change a nation forever.

Jefferson, the first-ever African-American heavyweight champion,
fights racism, hostile fans, and aggressive promoters to become
the top fighter in the world in the early 1900s.

However, once at the top, Jefferson finds that he has provoked
the anger of the government, labor unions, and the boxing racket
itself because of his race, talent, and his romance with a white
woman, Eleanor (Jane Alexander).

Under investigation by the government, Jefferson travels the
world fighting for a promoter whose main focus is to find a white
fighter who can match Jefferson's prowess in the ring--that is the
definition of the great white hope of the title.

Bolstered by Mr. Jones's powerful performance,
THE GREAT
WHITE HOPE
is a searing examination of prejudice in 20th
century America.

The film doesn't back down from some of the more complex and
disturbing issues in the play, namely the psychological reasons
for the white establishment's fear of Johnson. Revealing and
entertaining, Ritt's film takes an unflinching look at racial politics
in America.
