The Pistol

( 2 )

Overview

This is the biopic of basketball star Pistol Pete Maravich, here played by Adam Guier. The film is for the most part an exercise in joie de vivre, until it ends as it tragically must, with the sudden and untimely death of Maravich. Writer Darrel Campbell and director Frank Schroeder perform miracles with their tiny budget. Though Pistol is comparatively little known, odds are it won't remain that way much longer.

    Finally my favorite movie on DVD!

    I used to watch this movie before every game I played in junior high and high school. It is such an inspiration and I have worn out my VHS copy!
