Muhammad Ali

  1. Sydney Chaplin, The Adding Machine, 1969.   Surprise, surprise, Ali’s greatest name came up in director Jerome Epstein’s discussions about who should be Lieutenant Charles… in the weak UK film version of Elmer Rice’s play about a human adding machine (Milo O’Shea) being replaced at work by a mechanical adding machine.
  2. Ali Achmed Taram, Al-Risalah, Libya, 1976.    “There is no god but God, and Mohammed is the Messenger... “ The Champ was extremely keen to play Bilal in producer Moustapha Akkad’s Islam epic. Or epics: one in Arabic, the other in English. Akkad would not hear of hiring Ali. “It would smack of commercialism.” Enter the Arabic Taram...
  3. Johnny Sekka, The Message, Libya, 1976.    ... and the Senegal-born Sekka as producer Moustapha Akkad made both films without depicting the prophet, true to the strict teachings of Islam.
  4. Warren Beatty, Heaven Can Wait, 1978.    The Champ's ring schedule pushed Warren Beatty into a different sport.  “I couldn't see myself as a boxer but I had been a football player as a lad so I changed it.”
  5. Christopher Reeve, Superman, 1978.
