Movie Info

A woman struggles to rebuild her life after a devastating accident in this drama based on the true story of Jill Kinmont. Kinmont (played by Marilyn Hassett) was a top ranked amateur downhill skier who seemed assured of a place on the 1956 Olympic team. But while racing in Utah's Snow Cup competition, Kinmont suffered a serious fall from a mountain that left her paralyzed from the shoulders down. Kinmont became severely depressed; her career as an athlete was over, and her fiancée, who couldn't deal with the emotional toll of her accident, left her. But when she met pilot Dick Buek (Beau Bridges), she found both love and a new inspiration to make a career for herself as a teacher. But Kinmont discovered she still had more mountains to climb when Buek died in the crash of a small plane. Marilyn Hassett won a Golden Globe award for her performance as Jill Kinmont, and she reprised the role in a sequel two years later. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Critic Reviews for The Other Side of the Mountain

All Critics (2)

The Other Side of the Mountain triumphs over its own emotional base and becomes a powerful testimony to individual strength and the value of life.

December 3, 2019 | Full Review…

There are those who will weep and be inspired and feel that this is the Love Story of 1975, which, in a way, it is. And then there are those, like myself, who didn't much care for Love Story in 1970.
