Players ★ 1979 (PG)

Young tennis hustler touring Mexico hooks up with beautiful and mysterious older woman. They seem to be from different worlds yet their love grows. She inspires him enough to enter Wimbledon. Several tennis pros appear, including Guillermo Vilas, John McEnroe, and Ilie Nastase. Almost as boring as watching a real tennis game. 120m/ C VHS . Ali MacGraw, Dean Paul (Dino Martin Jr.) Martin, Maximilian Schell, Pancho Gonzales; D: Anthony Harvey; W: Arnold Schulman; M: Jerry Goldsmith.
