Released in 1969, Downhill Racer is full of stunning ski shots and the stunning young Robert Redford, proving the golden boy's affinity for the snowy environs of Park City, UT, are long-lived. Redford plays the hardheaded new skier on the US team whose selfish behavior clashes with the coach, portrayed by Gene Hackman, and the team. The movie culminates with the finals of the downhill race at the Olympics. Who wins? I will not spoil the excitement.
