This is a riveting compilation of documentary footage of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from the Montgomery bus boycott to the “I Have a Dream” speech at the Lincoln Memorial, from the dogs of Selma to the Nobel Prize and the fateful motel balcony in Memphis. Admitted to the National Film Registry in 1999, King: A Filmed Record… is a cinematic national treasure that allows viewers to be first-hand witnesses to Dr. King’s crusade, and thereby gain a fuller appreciation of both the personal challenges he endured and the vast cultural legacy he left behind. Featuring narration and commentary from Sidney Poitier, James Earl Jones, Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Charlton Heston, Harry Belefonte, Ruby Dee, Clarence Williams III, and others. Co-directed and produced by Sidney Lumet and Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
