Energetic, entertaining sports picture: basketball's answer to Rocky, with extra strengths in the form of a convincing representation of American rural life, circa 1951. Dennis Hopper won an Oscar nomination for his supporting role as the local misfit, but it's Gene Hackman who controls the picture as an inspiring coach.
