documents his life, with plenty of footage of his important fights.
16 March 2003 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Revealing look at a unique personality. His showmanship and steadfastness to his beliefs are admirably brought out. But the fact that he remained a showman to the end of his days, putting on a face in public, meant that maybe we never will get to see the man behind the show-man. Somehow get the feeling that his personal hopes, vision, fears etc. are never truly revealed. But a recommended viewing nevertheless.
