The Other Side of the Mountain


The Other Side of the Mountain

"The Other Side of the Mountain" is a 1975 American film based on a true story of ski racing champion Jill Kinmont.

In early 1955, Kinmont was the national champion in slalom and was a top U.S. prospect for a medal in the 1956 Winter Olympics, a year away. She was paralyzed in a near-fatal downhill accident at the "Snow Cup" in Alta, Utah, weeks before her 19th birthday, leaving her a quadraplegic.

The film was directed by Larry Peerce and stars Marilyn Hassett and Beau Bridges. It features the Oscar-nominated theme song "Richard's Window" (composed by Charles Fox, lyrics by Norman Gimbel), sung by Olivia Newton-John.

A sequel was made in 1978.
