Dick Francis: Blood Sport (1989 TV Movie)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
In the book of Blood Sport, David Cleveland is called Gene Hawkins.
I've never seen this production, so I can't say how faithful the story of the series was to Dick Francis's book - but I can tell you that they have put the wrong lead character in the story.
I'm not a fan of racing - but Dick Francis did write some good books on the subject - mostly about various racing scams.
Some seemed to have little to do with racing on the surface - the majority of the characters through whose eyes the stories are told are jockeys or trainers - somebody dies and the jockey or trainer turns detective to get to the bottom - putting their own life in danger.
