Editorial Reviews

These are the lost interviews with: The Greatest of All Time! - Filmed at his home in Michigan and during the making of Champions Forever--the acclaimed documentary that brought together Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Larry Holmes, and Ken Norton for the first and only time--these 1990 interviews with Craig Glazer were placed in a vault and forgotten for nearly 20 years until rediscovered by Producers Craig Glazer and Ron Hamady. In these never before seen conversations, a playful, feisty, and inspiring Ali talks about his place in history, his love for his fellow heavyweight champs, and even throws punches like the young Ali.



This is the only time that all heavyweight champions were ever together and Muhammad fought them all!

I don't know if this film had a theatrical release or not but if it did and it wasn't at least nominated by the Academy for Best Documentary of the Year as far as I'm concerned the makers of this film were robbed.

Format: VHS Tape
Of course any reparte among the named fighters is a treasure, but the dinner-table footage makes these behemoths uncomfortable and restless; maybe its reggie's awkward questions that stifle the flow, but there is still the irrepresible spirit of a hindered Ali who, even in his labored expression, gets under Frazier's skin almost drawing Joe out of his chair like in Howard Cosell days... I wish the fight footage was less chopped up, but its archival quality is irreplaceable, including Ali-Liston II, which, for my generation anyway, is a vision limited to one famous frozen image. I was fascinated to see the moments leading up to the anchor punch, and git up and fight sucka!
if you can forgive the schmalzy, over-reverent musical intro and ill-conceived group interviews, its real educational. i was especially moved by the time-capsule quality of the biographical remarks of these aging and dignified fighters, and the contrast in their philosophies and reasons for fighting in the first place.

Format: DVD
I took a chance and bought this edition even though I am a happy owner of the previous edition...because they tempted me with the "Lost interviews" with Ali! Well...I was expecting a few minutes..NOT a half an hour of extra interviews which alone are worth the price of admission....
so....if you don't have this on DVD absolutely BUY this edition and if you are an Ali collector ...do yourself a favor and get this version!!!

Its a worthy documentary and the champions dinner is okay...I don't want to waste space reviewing it as the original version has plenty of them...I just wanted folks curious about the NEW version to know what the new footage is...

I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at this new movie, which shows around 30 to 40 minutes of interviews with "the greatest" Ali...never before seen anywhere...I'd say he had recently retired, could still speak pretty well and was still funny as hell. It was also very sad to hear him talk about how he wants to be remembered, at the time of these interviews he was likely around 40 plus....still handsome still wanting to come back and fight then champ Mike Tyson...some of the things he said were so powerful..."I didn't say I was the greatest,you guys did...when I quit the game, the game died didn't it? Mike Tyson, he's good but he's no Muhammad Ali"....boy was he right on all levels....this movie is so great...and then the original movie follows with Foreman,Fraiser,Holmes and Norton, their fights...and of course their lives and more Ali....I am a young person...thank you guys...Hamady,Glazer,Bellagio,Whitworth, and all for giving me this great exciting tale and history...Ali was the best ever so is this movie on him....loved it

Format: DVD
What a shame this fine production is marred -- somewhat RUINED -- with the music they chose--
all that sad, sentimental, tragic, 'wipe away the tears', 'funeral for a noble hero' music... UGHHHH!!!! Give me a break!!
Such a heavy layer of emotional manipulation!
Let the VIEWER decide how to feel about the material!!

What a shame. The interviews and fight clips are very good.

On another note, I'm watching a newer documentary, Facing Ali, and so far it is EXCELLENT.
I HIGHLY recommend it to fans of boxing in the sixties & seventies.

Ali fans might also enjoy the documentary of Ali preparing to fight Foreman in Africa (1974) 'When We Were Kings'.
It captures some of the flavor of what it was like to hang out with Ali and his entourage (their playful banter) at his training camp in PA in the seventies, which I did.
