THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN (1975) is the inspirational true story of Olympic hopeful Jill Kinmont (Marilyn Hassett, The Bell Jar). 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 (The Landlord) and Dabney Coleman (9 to 5) co-star in this critically acclaimed story of human courage and a champion determined to find the other side of the mountain. Directed by Larry Peerce (The Incident) with a screenplay by David Seltzer (The Omen), based on the book A Long Way Up by E.G. Valens. THE OTHER SIDE OF THE MOUNTAIN: PART II (1978) continues to tell the soul-stirring true story of an Olympic contender who will not stop reaching for the stars even after she is handicapped in a skiing accident. The courageous Jill Kinmont (Marilyn Hassett, Shadow of the Hawk) returns to her childhood home where she fights off the memories of her ill-fated past and is reintroduced to the power of love by a sensitive trucker (Timothy Bottoms, The Paper Chase). Their unusual courtship and marriage is a true love story for everyone who believes in happy endings. Directed by Larry Peerce (Goodbye, Columbus) and written by Douglas Day Stewart (An Officer and a Gentleman).
