Picks and Pans Review: Freedom Road

UPDATED 10/29/1979 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 10/29/1979 at 01:00 AM EST

NBC (9-11 p.m. ET)

Muhammad Ali, so bad it's a relief to know he has a few bucks saved up from his old career, plays a slave who becomes a senator during Reconstruction. While Kris Kristofferson, a white sharecropper, is better, he can't carry the champ. The script (based on Howard Fast's novel) is incredibly slow. (Concludes Tuesday, at 9 p.m.)
