Summary Explores the complex life of the troubled genius whose charisma and talent spurred a worldwide fascination with the "game of kings."

Providing an unprecedented look at the man behind the headlines, this documentary weaves together news clips dating from the 1950s to the 2000s, photographs, letters and exclusive interviews with friends, fans and colleagues.
