The Pistol: The Birth of a Legend (1991)

Director: Frank C. Schroeder

Writers: Darrel Campbell; Pete Maravich; Frank C. Schroeder

Music Composed and Conducted by: Brent Havens

Producer: Darrel Campbell

Keywords: Sports Drama, Basketball, Biography

Biopic of basketball legend Pistol Pete Maravich, who died at the untimely age of 40 from a congenital heart defect. Much of the film is Pete on the 8th grade Varsity team at Daniel High School. Per Christianity Today, "Not so much a movie as it is a sermon." Although released to the theater, poor overall acting gives it a made-for-TV Afterschool Special quality.
