Check out this Trailer for the 1972 movie “Black Rodeo” with boxing legend Muhammed ALI!
This film starred Muhammad Ali and Woody Strode. The Film contained music by Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Little Richard, and Ray Charles.
This was a rodeo movie like few others we have ever come across!
It was a Documentary about a rodeo that takes place, for the most part, in Harlem, New York City.
We found these quotes from a review of the movie:
“Black Rodeo (1972) is a documentary that nimbly records the spills and thrills of a cowboy-animal roundup in two New York stadium performances. Best of all, the picture exudes a wonderfully winning pride of African American cowboys. The film blends the two elements—the rousing Western show itself and the savvy jargon of the performers, and the intrigued delight of the watchers, young and old, over the unfamiliar dark faces under those Stetsons. We especially liked one sequence when Muhammad Ali amusingly mingles with the rodeo folk and rides a Brahma bull.” Who ever knew Muhammad Ali saddled up for rodeo! We welcome all rodeo fans and cowboys- no matter who they are! We never knew about this movie!
