Jim Brown: All American (2002) - TV Movie
Spike Lee directs this moving portrait of a complicated, charismatic man, one who has spent his life in the spotlight, first making football history as one of the 20th century's greatest athletes, and later as the star of numerous Hollywood features, where he pioneered a new kind of African-American hero.

The story starts in the present(relatively) in 1989 when Larry Holmes is knocked out by Tyson at Caesars Palace. After an interview with Holmes, we are taken right back to the beginning as Cassius Clay wins the Olympic gold medal(1960). As expected, Muhammad Ali is the main focus(having been the only one to fight every other boxer present). However I didn't feel that anyone had been left out. Having watched this video I have a new found respect for all of the fighters.
