A.K.A. Cassius Clay is a documentary about legendary heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali as ascended to his position as one of the greatest of all time. This documentary film covers the time period of Muhammad Ali's career from the 1960's up until a few years before the "Rumble in the Jungle" match in 1974. We watch Ali as he enters the world stage at the 1960 Olympic Games, as well as his historic upset against Sonny Liston in 1964, through his religious conversion to the Nation of Islam, up until his draft dodging incident became national news. Rare, archival footage is used to trace the narrative of the young boxer as he blazed new ground in the boxing, and ultimately professional athletic, realm. A.K.A. Cassius Clay features exclusive, one-of-a-kind interviews with such figures of the time as Malcolm X, Joe Louis and Ali himself. The film was produced by Jim Jacobs and Bill Cayton, who would later be the managers of boxer Mike Tyson.moreless
