The Man Who Skied Down Everest - BUY THIS DVD!
Winner of the Academy Award for Best Documentary in 1975, this stirring chronicle tells the tale of Japanese alpinist YÃ»ichirÃ´ Miura and his attempt to ski down Mt. Everest in 1970. Narrator Douglas Rain reads from Miuraâ€™s actual diary giving a first-hand look of his thoughts as he ascends the mountain. The grueling expedition resulted in the deaths of several people, all so Miura could live his dream. Co-director Lawrence Schiller would go on to produce and direct some exceptional television productions, including The Executionerâ€™s Song, and the Emmy-winning mini-series Peter the Great.
