(1970) In commemoration of Martin Luther King’s March on Washington exactly 50 years ago today, an epic record of the greatest American social movement of the 20th century, focusing on its greatest leader, all taken from news footage of the time, with no wrap-around musical score or omniscient narrator, the great speeches shown, not as greatest hits sound bites, but in their entirety, punctuated with literary excerpts read by luminaries including Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward, Ruby Dee, James Earl Jones, Anthony Quinn, and Charlton Heston in interstitials directed by Sidney Lumet and Joseph L. Mankiewicz. Originally shown just once — across the country in hundreds of theaters in a single day — this unique record has been restored by the Library of Congress. Oscar-nominated for Best Documentary. Produced by Ely Landau. Associate Producer: Richard Kaplan. Approx. 185 minutes.
