Pre-film conversation with Stan Smith and Patrick McEnroe, President of the International Tennis Hall of Fame

Shown in Partnership with the International Tennis Hall of Fame 


ABOUT THE FILM:From Executive Producers LeBron James and Maverick Carter, Danny Lee’s “Who is Stan Smith?” highlights Smith’s tennis accomplishments, but also covers his humanitarian feats off the tennis court: Smith’s relationship with Arthur Ashe heavily inspired his anti-racist activism, while touching upon his relationship with Black player, Mark Mathabane, whom Smith helped escape from apartheid in South Africa.

More than the namesake of one of the world’s most iconic sneakers, Stan Smith has lived a champion’s life on and off the tennis court. Chronicling his rise from collegiate superstar to World No.1 and beyond, Smith blazed new paths for athletes, both as a humanitarian and fashion icon. Complete with intimate first-person accounts and dynamic archival materials, “Who Is Stan Smith?” is a powerful and inspiring portrait of the man behind the shoe that became a movement.
