87min. Directed by Alan Elliott, Sydney Pollack.
Starring Aretha Franklin, Reverand James Cleveland, C.L. Franklin
Amazing Grace depicts the 1972 concert when Franklin performed with James Cleveland and The Southern California Community Choir at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles. Warner Bros Records hired the late Sydney Pollack to film the show over two nights as a companion piece to the recording of a live album of the same name, which went on to become the biggest-selling album of Franklin’s career. The film remained unseen for decades, because Pollack forgot to use clapperboards, which made it almost impossible to sync sound to image. After Pollack died in 2008, Alan Elliot took over the film and produced with Joe Boyd, Rob Johnson, Sabrina Owens, Tirrell D. Whittley, Jerry Wexler, and Joseph Woolf.
