Downhill Racer (1969)

When smug and arrogant David Chappellet (Robert Redford) joins the American ski team, tempers flare and issues arise. For one, the team's coach (Gene Hackman) vehemently opposes David's cocky attitude. Secondly, a rivalry is born between David and Johnny Creech (Jim McMullan), widely considered the team's best skier. The storyline of the BAFTA-winning Downhill Racer follows the team's preparation for the Olympics.

    What a tragedy Munich was. Palestinians should be ashamed of murdering innocent young athletes for one reason – they’re Jewish. Wasn’t what Hitler did bad enough? They have to keep targetting Jews and not allow them peace in their own country? This conflict makes me sick. Muslims have been causing problems for many years and look at the state of our world as we keep turning a blind eye.
