Draper paints affecting thumbnail portraits of athletes like Ralph Metcalfe, a slightly older sprinter who became a role model for Owens, and Howell King, a boxer who... was forced, for no good reason, to do his qualifying bout a second time.
Draper's thorough research process yields fascinating details on the lives and careers of the athletes, particularly their early histories as amateur competitors.
The fearlessly blunt Olympic Pride, American Prejudice is freed from the crowd-pleasing constraints often imposed on the biopic genre.
History is not neat and tidy, however much we wish it could be, and "Olympic Pride, American Prejudice" is more than adept at getting to the truth about perhaps the most mythologized event of the modern Olympic movement.
