Downhill Racer -- A skier and his coach battle it out on the mountain in this trailer for classic late 60s film
Trailer for the 1969 classic Downhill Racer.
Astonishing Alpine location photography and a young Robert Redford in one of his earliest starring roles are just two of the visual splendors of Michael Ritchie's visceral debut feature, Downhill Racer. In a beautifully understated performance, Redford is David Chappellet, a ruthlessly ambitious skier competing with an underdog American team in Europe for Olympic gold, and Gene Hackman provides tough support as the coach who tries to temper the upstart's narcissistic drive for glory.
Featurette for Downhill Racer that comes packaged with The Criterion Collection. In the clip, Robert Redford explains all the production bumps in the road when it came to getting the film made.
