Sly Stone and Muhammad Ali on The Mike Douglas Show (1974)

Published on 26 May 2020 / In Film & Animation

Mike’s co-host is Family man Sly Stone, who talks about his music, his incredible costumes and his 138 Mercedes, a gift from Doris Day. His friend, Muhammad Ali joins them, but he's in a fighting mood. And he says exactly what he thinks:
Talk shows are phony, karate boxers are better than prizefighters, and, in his upcoming match with George Forman in South Africa, he'll take the title back--no problem. Ali also talks about his children; three daughters and a son, who he hopes will never get into the ring. Actor/singer Theodore Bikel performs music from his hit Fiddler On The Roof. Congressman Wayne Hays makes an appearance to discuss the evils of campaiim spending. Ali then gets into a heated discussion with him about racial politics that Sly tries In vain to break up. Then Sly lightens things up with a song that gets the audience on their feet.” - video box description
