Downhill Racer - review (1969)

A late 60's skiing drama starring Robert Redford & some great horns (that make up most the score.)   More of a character study than a sports film.  Redford is the hot shot member of the USA Ski Team that When watching this you can't help but thing how sports films have changes over the last 40 years.  Gene Hackman plays a no-nonsense coach - he's a one of a kind.  If you can get into skiing, there are some fairly exciting and authentic feeling skiing scenes.  6 out of 10
