PG-13 | | Biography, Drama, History
A chronicle of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s campaign to secure equal voting rights via an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965.
The only Best Picture Oscar nominee that year not to be nominated in any of the writing categories.
President Lyndon B. Johnson:
And we shall overcome.
At the beginning of the first march, the marchers pass an auto parts store that has a sign outside advertising "Shocks Struts (etc)". In 1965 very few cars used struts and of the ones that did, chances are very slim that they would have been available in Selma.
Martin Sheen is not listed in the credits.
