Movie: Hoosiers (1986)
- The fact that this is another inspiring sports story doesn't make it a usual fare thanks to the town angle given to it.
- Gene Hackman doesn't look the part as a coach superficially, but when he gets into the act, he does what can be expected of the veteran!
- His confrontations with the special boy talent, with the drunkard and the school teacher add fillip to the show!
Shows how sports can give a town its name!
