Wayne Rogers as Daredevil on Ski slopes..irony is Sonny Bono's supporting role
2 December 2000 | by (Hawaii) – See all my reviews

The TV film aired in 1980 and I remember it well. Wayne Rogers is a daredevil married to Adrienne Barbeau who he separates from to hit the mountains (I think it was Aspen). He meets some horny women like the German Elke Sommer and has a friendship with a pianist Sonny Bono and has a one-night stand with Bono's girl (in one scene she takes her top off says "I don't want to be alone tonight" and goes into Rogers bedroom, Rogers eagerly following.)

Rogers enters the suicidal slolum (or whatever it's called) race with an emotionally desparate partner. For Sonny Bono to be in this film about daredevils in self-danger makes his ski-accident death that much more ironic.
