Original Vintage Movie Posters @ Film/Art Gallery

Welcome to the official Film/Art Gallery collection of original Downhill Racer vintage movie posters. Film/Art Gallery offers a wide range of movie posters and artwork for one of cinema's ultimate sport drama films.

Based on the 1963 novel The Downhill Racers by Oakley Hall, Downhill Racer is a 1969 American sports drama film starring Robert Redford, Gene Hackman and Camilla Sparv, and was written by James Salter. It was filmed in Kitzbühel and Sankt Anton am Arlberg in Austria, Wengen, Switzerland, Megève and Grenoble in France, and Boulder Idaho Springs in Colorado, United States. The film was released on July 5th through the 20th of 1984 at the FILMEX: Los Angeles International Film Exposition, giving Redford two box office hits at the same time

The film is about a talented, ambitious young downhill skier David Chappellet (Robert Redford) who joins in international skiing competitions and clashes with the United States ski team’s coach Eugene Claire (Gene Hackman). The movie tells us more about the sport, the daily life of the ski amateur and the efforts of the coach to hold the team together in New York. David’s casual affair with a ski groupie girl Carole Stahl (Camilla Sparv), where he experiences a crisis of conscience and emotional attachments, impede his progress.

Upon the theatrical release, Roger Ebert in his review for the Chicago Sun-Times, gave the film four out of four stars, calling it "the best movie ever made about sports—without really being about sports with lots of good skiing action leading to an exciting climax. In addition to praising the performances of Redford and Hackman, Ebert noted how well the film balanced the exciting action sequences and the less glamorous aspects of an athlete's life.
