This documentary is from 1970, and it's excellent. I have never seen it before, but you can watch it on HBO Max. Assembled from a treasure trove of archival footage, King: A Filmed Record...Montgomery to Memphis is a celebratory documentary that follows Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from 1955 to 1968, in his meteoric rise from regional activist to a Nobel Peace Prize winning world-renowned leader of the Civil Rights Movement. Rare footage of King's speeches, protests and arrests are interspersed with scenes of other high-profile supporters and opponents of the cause, namely Stokely Carmichael, then punctuated by heartfelt testimonials by some of Hollywood's biggest stars of the era, such as Harry Belafonte, Ruby Dee, Joanne Woodward, Paul Newman, James Earl Jones, Ben Gazzara, Charlton Heston, Burt Lancaster, Anthony Quinn and Clarence Williams III.
King: A Filmed Record...Montgomery to Memphis was originally presented as a one-night only special on March 20, 1970, at an epic length of more than three hours (plus intermission). Since the original airing, the documentary has been periodically seen in a shorter version. Newly restored by the Library of Congress in association with Richard Kaplan, and utilizing film elements provided by The Museum of Modern Art, the original version can once again be seen in its entirety, mastered in HD from the 35mm preservation negative.
King: A Filmed Record...Montgomery to Memphis was admitted to the National Film Registry in 1999. This documentary is a historic treasure that allows the viewers to be first-hand witnesses to Dr. King's tireless crusade for justice, fairness and equality. And it also invites the audience to have a better appreciation for his personal challenges, sacrifices and the vast cultural legacy Dr. King left behind.
