The Pistol is the uplifting and inspirational true story of NBA superstar, Pistol Pete Maravich. The film focuses on Pete as a scrawny eighth grader whose stunning basketball skills earn him a spot on the high school team! Unfortunately, Pete's "showtime" style of basketball is way ahead of it's time in 1959, making him the target of ridicule and socially separating him from his teammates. Against all odds, Pete perseveres with the encouragement of his father, Press Maravich (Days of our Lives' Nick Benedict) and the love of his mother, Helen (Academy Award Nominee Millie Perkins). Filmmakers Darrel Campbell (Home Improvement, Last Ounce of Courage) and Rodney Stone (Last Ounce of Courage), go to great lengths to bring Pistol Pete fans this re-mastered sports classic.
