    We'll soon find out. Marilyn Meeker Durham is one of the persons consulted for RISE, as per the film's website. She'll probably be one of the persons interviewed in the film..hopefully.

    Also, there is this from Wikipedia -

    In my area as far as I know it's just the film presentation. But if it's like you say then even better yet-more skating to enjoy on the big screen.

    Frank Deford talked about the anniversary of the crash on NPR's morning edition today (the transcript can be found on the NPR website). Sadly, he did not mention RISE.

    This should answer your QQs:
    from Wikipedia -
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marilyn_Meeker

    As of May 2007, Marilyn (Meeker) Durham resides in New Braunfels, TX with her husband, John, of 45 years; they have two adult children and two granddaughters.

    If she were 18 in 1960, she'd be around 68 now (mas o menos).

This was the first commercial crash of a Boeing 707 and I'm sure besides the normal investigation Boeing went over the matter with a fine-tooth comb. (I should ask my brother, who's in aviation mgt, and my Dad, who was an engineer at Boeing, though I think a few years after the crash. He did do something about the later versions of the 707, though, so I suppose it can't hurt to ask.) At this point, it's unlikely anyone will figure out exactly what went wrong. The descriptions I've read certainly SOUND like there was some sort of mechanical error, but no survivors, no black box/cockpit recorders, and the pilot not saying anything to the tower before they went down, and not many pieces left...one of those mysteries unlikely to ever be solved.

    Yes wrong choice of words, my bad. But I'm sure you get my drift

    Say,unless I missed it in the artical. How old is she now,and what's she doing now? I just read that she's married with 2 kids. BTW. do they skate? Also,was the lucky Marilyn Meeker ever interviewed about her feelings about what happened? I can almost imagine her breaking her leg,waiting for it to heal so she could get back on ice with her Partner. Then finding that after all that,that something else needed healing...her inside. Because she lost her Partner. Did we say who she Partnered up with after that? The artical is right about one thing though.God DID leave her with good fortune....as what COULD have happened. BTW. we've seen photos of DIANE and Larry (Sherbloom/Pierce. But are there any left of Marilyn and Larry (or Meeker/Pierce)? Thanks.

    Dang. I wish I'd seen that a couple of days ago. I wish that the USFSA did a better job of marketing to fans.

    Here's a nice article by Frank DeFord, although he doesn't mention the movie.

    I don't think this movie is being broadcast in Canada- I can't find it in any movie listings in the Greater Vancouver area.

    Hopefully there will be a DVD though! I'd love to see the movie..

    I got an e-mail tonight from the Nats LOC, mostly geared to NC locals - they're having a yard sale of Nats merchandise and promotional items (posters, signs, etc) this weekend, lol - and they are having a pre-Rise party (with free tickets) for the Nats volunteers (those who are local, obviously) at a local theater that is showing the movie, and the e-mail mentions that "Rise starts at 8 pm, with preliminary on-screen activities beginning at 7:30 pm". That is in line with what I heard a few months ago - I think it's just going to be a red carpet type of show, with video shots and interviews of the showing in NYC, so you might want to get to your theater a little early.

    Thanks. I agree with the person who left a comment on the site-I too wish Frank had at least mentioned the deceased champions by name, and that he had not wandered off talking about other sports tragedies, or near tragedies. And I also agree with the person who left that comment that Frank only usually comments on skating with snarky remarks.

    I read somewhere that Larry Pierce had been a Marine. I'm sure I read about another athlete on the team who was military.

    This is very useful information to know. Thank you! I'll make a point of getting to my theater earlier-than-usual.

    9:30 or 9:45 might be closer, but 10 is probably a good outside estimate.

    On the USFS midwestern conference call (club officers), they said that half an hour before the RISE movie, there will be "vintage" clips similar to what is shown on the jumbotron at Nationals. 10 min to the hour, the live red carpet event from Time Square will begin to broadcast. On the hour, the movie will be shown, followed by the (taped) special performances. At least, I think I got this right.

    We also were at the taping. Randy Gardner did simple but lovely group choreography for Evan, kids from the North Carolina skating clubs (carrying pennant flags), and all the newly crowned champions, novice to senior. Very dramatic lighting, should be good.

    I think that's right. I was on the Eastern section conf call, and we got the same thing, but I can't find my notes from that call to save my life. But your post has jogged my memory.
