re: Ponce de Leon Park-I was with
Famous Artists when we presented
the closed circuit telcast of the
famous Ali-Liston drama-Ali had
just become Ali and the Muslims
were out in support selling Elijah
Speaks in their black suits and hombergs.
I left the box office to rush in
and catch some of the bout in time
to see Ali standing over Liston
and everyone asking "what happened?" at this
historic moment in 1964.
I thought the crowd would rush the
box office demanding their money
back-no one said a word.
