By Director John Dower. 'Smokin' Joe Frazier and Muhammad Ali fought three times, but it was their third and final epic encounter in the searing heat of the Philippines on October 1, 1975, that cemented their rivalry and ended so dramatically that it continues to provoke controversy. Combined with electrifying archival footage and exclusive interviews, Thrilla in Manila is Joe Frazier's story an absorbing, sad account of bitterness, religion, politics and racism, conveying both the depths of their rivalry as well as the explosive racial politics in America at the time. The pair had once been friends, with Frazier supporting Ali when he was stripped of his boxing license for refusing to fight in Vietnam. But once Ali was back in the ring, their friendship soon turned into a vicious feud: Ali accused Frazier of being a traitor to his people and went from an anti-war and civil rights leader to an opportunist and narcissist willing to do anything to promote himself in the spotlight. Time Life Entertainment (2009), Color, English, DVD discs: 1, Rated: NR (Not Rated), Run Time: 110 minutes.


Thought by many fans to be the most exciting boxing match (and certainly one of the most violent punch-fests) in sports history, this almost-primal fight in the Philippines, arranged by flamboyant promoter Don King, featured longtime rivals Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, who had many basic ideological differences and were manifestly not the best of friends. The fight, attended by a number of celebrities, went on at high intensity for 14 vivid, grueling rounds. As Ali said: "It'll be a chilla, and a killa, and a thrilla, when I get the gorilla in Manila." The documentary is introduced by veteran sports commentator Jim Lampley, contains the entire fight, and includes on-scene commentary from former champion Ken Norton, the legendary "Voice of Boxing" Don Dunphy, comedian Flip Wilson, and actor Hugh O'Brian. ~ Alice Duncan, Rovi All Movie Guide
