Originally screened in theatres for only a single night in 1970, King: A Filmed Record combines dramatic readings by Harry Belafonte, James Earl Jones and Paul Newman, among others, with newsreel and rare archival footage to create a powerful and comprehensive record of Dr. King’s legacy and the American Civil Rights movement.
