Don King: Only In America (1997)

  • Ving Rhames
  • Vondie Curtis-Hall
  • Jeremy Piven
Biography of fight promoter Don King follows his rise from a street goon convicted of strong arm tactics to a minor music promoter to pulling off his first major fight with Muhammed Ali for a charity. Ving Rhames' characterization gives a fully three dimensional person with warts and all, but still makes it understandable how he became the affluent promoter he has become.
