KING: A FILMED RECORD…MONTGOMERY TO MEMPHIS. This powerful work – screened in theaters for one night only in 1970, then virtually forgotten for more than 40 years – documents Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1950’s and 1960’s struggle for civil rights against fierce southern opposition. It uses only newsreel and other primary material, unvarnished and un-retouched, covering the period from the 1955 Montgomery, Alabama bus boycott to his 1968 assassination in Memphis, Tennessee. Considered by critics one of the finest documentaries ever made.
