The action in this disturbing and entertaining 1970 drama comes to blows with James Earl Jones as the legend Jack Jefferson defeating Frank Bardy Larry Pennell to become the world's first black heavyweight champion. Sadly, he encounters racism and hostilefans when he is arrested and tried under the Mann Act after crossing state lines with his white girlfriend Eleanor, played by Jane Alexander in her feature debut. Found guilty and sentenced to three years in prison, the boxer escapes. In exchange for a fixed fight in Cuba, he is offered his freedom from criminal charges. Based on the Broadway play by Howard Sackler about the real-life trials and tribulations of boxer Jack Johnson, this film doesn't flinch from an examination of the psychological causes of racism.
