  • Description

    The world champion boxer, Mohammed Ali is in London to launch his first film. Ali plays himself in the film which covers twenty years of his life and is entitled, predictably, "The Greatest". He began his promotion only days before the film is due to open at three London theatres.

    SYNOPSIS: Ali says that he wants to play Hannibal, crossing the Alps with hundreds of elephants for his next screen role. After that he wants to play a black Egyptian warrior. He says he intends to go into wholesome films with a helpful message for mankind. In the meantime he's concentrating on his film debut.

    "The Greatest" begins in 1960 with the then named Cassius Clay easily winning the light heavyweight gold medal at he Rome Olympics. It ends with his win over George Foreman in 1974. Visnews' Ian McMinn asked him later about his boxing career.
