Malcolm X pix reissued for Black History Month

On the heels of Spike Lee’s “Malcolm X” and in time for Black History Month in February, two classic films are being reissued: “Nothing But a Man” and “Malcolm X–The Documentary.”

Produced by Marvin Worth and Arnold Perl, the “Malcolm X” docu was released by Warner Bros. in 1972 and is being reissued by Kit Parker Films.

Docu “Malcolm X” returns to the screen Jan. 20 at Manhattan’s Film Forum for a three-week booking and has February dates at San Francisco’s Castro Theater and San Jose’s Towne cinema. It also will be shown at New York’s Public Theater Feb. 12-25 as part of a salute to Black History Month there that features several other films and TV shows about Malcolm X, including Morgan Freeman starring in Woodie King Jr.’s 1981 docudrama “Death of a Prophet.”

Directed by Michael Roemer, who made the film in collaboration with Robert M. Young, “Nothing But a Man” was an important film in the independent American cinema when released in November 1964 by Cinema V after debuting at the Venice Film Festival. It was hailed for its non-stereotyped depiction of the African American experience.

Its reissue is being handled by Original Cinema, in association with New Video Group, kicking off with special screenings by the Black Film Makers Foundation and the Coalition of 100 Black Women, leading to a Feb. 19 booking at Film Forum. Subsequent dates in Boston, Chicago, Washington, D.C., L.A., Minneapolis, Portland, Oregon, San Francisco and Seattle are under way.
