what would interest me is why this movie is dated 1969 when obviously a big part of it surrounds the fight Foreman vs. Ali in 1974.

This documentary was filmed and then shown in 1969. There is a second part that was filmed 10 years later when Ali was making his comeback against Foreman. Since the video releases included both parts they list the date as 1974. IMDB lists the date as 1969 because that was when the documentary was first shown. Hope this helps clear things up.


Have you seen this film? What did you think?

This film in this form was issued in 1974 if not 1975 so it does not make sense to list it as a 1969 film.i actually saw this film in 1978 when it was released in malta in the version dubbed in Italian. i am positive that this film was much shorter than 120 minutes and probably the Italians dubbed the 96 minute american version
