UserpicKing: A Filmed Record...from Montgomery to Memphis
Posted by myfilmblog.com

"This three-hour record of Martin Luther King, Jr.,’s work in the civil-rights movement is a genuine spiritual epic—a chronicle of public action that’s suffused with passion, reason, and understanding. The movie brilliantly orchestrates extraordinary footage of marches, rallies, and church services and complements these precious pieces of history with poetic readings by artists and entertainers—including Harry Belafonte and, yes, Charlton Heston—who marched with King."
