This Sporting Life back to product details

The Art of Richard Harris

With his recent passing, folks will be taking a look at the films of Richard Harris. Except for his work over the last decade, very little is available on DVD. However, the great exception to this is his first leading role and Oscar nominated performance in This Sporting Life. Director Lindsay Anderson started his career in documentaries and it shows here in his portrayal of a working class stiff who achieves fame on the rugby field through brutality. Harris's performance is intense and the relationship between his character and Rachel Roberts's is touching and scary in it's frankness. There's no better place to start if you want to take a look at the art of Richard Harris.
