Downhill Racer (1969)



Reviews and Comments

Except for some effective skier's-eye view of downhill ski races, there's not much to see here. Robert Redford stars as an arrogant Olympic skier, and Gene Hackman (in a performance too good for this film) is his coach. Alas, there's an overdose of ineffective (and therefore dull) characterization scenes which sink the movie.
