The Terry Fox Story ★★★ 1983

In the spring of 1980, a young man who had lost his right leg to cancer dipped his artificial limb into the Atlantic Ocean and set off on a fund-raising “Marathon of Hope” across Canada, drawing national attention. Inspiring true story is well-scripted and avoids corniness. Good acting from real-life amputee Fryer and, as usual, from Duvall. 96m/C VHS . Eric Fryer, Robert Duvall, Chris Makepeace, Michael Zelniker, Rosalind Chao; D: Ralph L. (R.L.) Thomas; M: Bill Conti. Genie ‘84: Actor (Fryer), Film, Support. Actor (Zelniker). TV
