This Sporting Life Reviews
Requires some patience though - starts slowly.
Good performances by Richard Harris and Rachel Roberts, both of whom received Oscar nominations for their efforts.
Not to be put off, the sport was well shot (with the tech available) but carried the personal drama along nicely. Richard Harris in his first lead role was brilliant. He showed better acting than in the ?starry? heyday of the roles I know him from -Juggernaught (brilliant bomb disposal actioner), Wild Geese (Alan, Alan?.), Cassandra Crossing (black death on a train). Now I know he was dialling in his performances when you can see what he could do when he was really trying.
Nice to see Arthur Lowe again too!
