New York City, September 27, 1976: Muhammad Ali makes a point during a press conference promoting The Greatest, a movie about his life in which he portrays himself. "I predict this is going to be the greatest movie of all time," Ali noted in characteristic fashion. "After all, I am the most famous person in the world ... I'm telling you, Charlton Heston is in trouble, Steve McQueen is in trouble, Paul Newman is in trouble, Robert Redford is in trouble. They're all in trouble now."
