Editorial Reviews

The Other Side of the Mountain is the inspirational true story of Olympic hopeful Jill Kinmont (Marilyn Hassett). Kinmont, an up-and-coming world-class skier, faces her greatest challenge when she is left paralyzed from the neck down after a tragic accident during a pre-Olympic competition in the 1950s. Beau Bridges and Dabney Coleman co-star in this critically acclaimed story of human courage and a champion determined to find "the other side of the mountain."

I don't own this film, but came across it by accident while browsing on Amazon. I haven't seen it in over 20 years, but somehow the power of Marilyn Hassett's performance came to mind. I remember it and am looking forward to a DVD version. Anyone else agree? Since it's out of print, there are blood-suckers out there capitalizing on its unavailability. Give us a DVD and let the blood-suckers stew in their greed. I remember great photography and wonderful music, as well as Hassett, whose career didn't take off. Pity. Hassett was nominated for a Golden Globe.

"The Other Side of the Mountain" tells the true-life story of '50's Olympic skiing hopeful Jill Kinmont, whose career was cut short by a devastating skiing accident that left her a paraplegic. The film follows her triumphant recovery and struggle to maintain a normal life. As directed by Larry Peerce, the film is inspiring, funny, sad, filled with good performances and features the beautiful vistas of California's Eastern Sierra Madres, in particular those surrounding the lovely town of Bishop. Unfortunately, David Seltzer's script is the weak link, as it never rises above the level of standard Hollywood biopic, with spotty dialog and a tendency to lapse into uncomfortable melodrama. Still, most viewers will ignore the hoakum and be totally engrossed in Kinmont's story.

Little-know starlet Marilyn Hassett plays Kinmont, and it's a good performance--even though she's clearly in her mid-twenties, she's believable as a giggly adolescent, and appropriately plucky when in full survival mode after tragedy strikes. Beau Bridges and Belinda J. Montgomery lend valuable support as first love (and fellow champion) Dick "Mad Dog" Buek

and childhood best friend Audra Jo, whose own career was ended by polio. While Bridges is the big scene stealer as a maverick whose tough-love rehabilitation approach will undoubtedly raise eyebrows, Montgomery is the true standout as the kind of friend everyone should have. Nan Martin and William Bryant as Jill's parents and Dabney Coleman (in an early role) as Jill's supportive coach round out the fine cast. And for once that most overworked of cinematic conceits, namely the framing device, works wonderfully well as an older Jill looks back on her life while teaching a class of Indian children.

This wonderful movie tells the story of world class skier Jill Kinmont, who seemed destined to reach the very pinnacle of her career, until a tragic accident left her a quadriplegic who would be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life, and her struggle to forge a new and meaningful life for herself in a world which can be very cruel at times, especially to people who have a physical disability. A truly inspirational story which shows that life can indeed continue and can even be good, even in the face of overwhelming odds. A must see for anyone who doubts the existence of true courage in the face of adversity or the remarkable resilience of the human spirit. Jill Kinmont, you're amazing!

I can vividly remember seeing this movie when I was in my late teens and it was extremely moving. The fact that it was actually based on a true life story made it tragic and yet so inspirational. As I now reach my 50's I would love to own it but want a DVD. Who can persuade the distributors to release it on DVD???

Why is it that movies like "Smoky & the Bandit" which have utterly no meaning or message get put on DVD, but a true-life story that shows the meaning of sacrifice and perseverence, never make the grade? The Other Side of the Mountain deserves to be on DVD!! Gee, you are already charging a mint for the VHS, think how much you could charge if the movie was on DVD!!

I agree with Mr. Leverton; It's a movie that you'll never forget! I have not seen this movie since the 70's but I still remember it like it was yesterday, especially the part when she flew off the mountain! I sat there with my mouth hanging open,

saying "No! No!" and I cried because to many times in life it seems that the people who are really gifted either die before their time or end up like Jill Kinmont. . . such a shame! I wish there was a petition I could sign to get this movie on DVD!

If I were a reviewer I would give it two thumbs up!

The other day my daughter came home from working with a story about seeing a boy she knew from high school who had been in a car accident and who is now struggling to function. He asked her on a date and she started crying. I told her she needed to watch "The Other Side of the Mountain." The other reviewers are right on - where is the DVD?
