    The filmmakers interviewed the family members and relatives, friends, students (Frank Carroll was a student of Maribel Vinson Owen's -- see the article link I posted on the previous page, post #57), etc., of those who died in the 1961 plane crash and they most likely shared their personal photos and memorabilia about them for this film.

    Sheryl Ryan Nolan's father was one of the U.S. coaches who died in the plane crash -- Daniel "Danny" Ryan, the coach of ice dancers Diane Sherbloom and Larry Pierce. Sheryl was one-and-a-half years old at the time of her father's death and today is a figure skating coach herself. Here's a 2009 article about her and her son, Christopher Nolan, who competed in the Novice Pairs event at 2009 and 2010 US Nationals (I think he may be retired from competitive skating now?): http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    Thanks to Sylvia and all the others who posted information about this film.

    I'm shocked in a good way that 2 theatres are showing it here in my city. My sister and I attended the 25th anniversary tribute together, a skating show held in Indianapolis in 1986 (Celebration America on Ice), so we will continue the tradition and see the film together. I'm sure we will cry as much this time as we did in 1986.

    The tag line bugs the hell out of me.

    It wasn't the end of a "dream".... it was the end of many peoples lives.

    Thanks. I wonder if Michele Kwan will repeat her famous quote about having a "Cosmic Connection to Maribel Vinson Owen"?

    That it was. And the non-skater/coach victims often seem forgotten.

    Review: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/rev...m-review-70997
    PALM SPRINGS -- Beneath its layers of schmaltzy cheerleading for a sport that's hardly unsung, Rise is a heartfelt tribute to a dream team of skaters who died in a 1961 plane crash.

    Bearing the U.S. Figure Skating imprimatur, this ode to the modern lineage of American ice champions amps the boosterism to an unnecessary degree. But with a collection of skating stars tracing the generational connections, and explaining in very personal terms how the perished athletes inspired them, the documentary, a world-premiere selection at the Palm Springs festival, packs an emotional punch.

    Had to get that in there, didn't you. Speaking of being repetitive...

    I just find that "cosmic connection" comment so shallow New Age...not one of Kwan's brightest moments. I heard it again the other day while converting old Nationals tapes to DVD and shuddered. It's like the Dick Button Drinking Game...I'll drink something if I hear the "cosmic connection" once again. I'll be sure to take a tiny bottle of cognac to the RISE premiere, just for this, in case it happens.

    Your fixation on that phrase is truly fascinating.

    One of the most profound statements I have ever read about the crash of 1961, was a comment that was made by a member of the 1964 US Olympic Figure Skating team, "The [team] uniforms were too big, it was like they were meant to worn by someone else"

    William Swallender, coach of Doug Ramsay was my coach's coach. I am currently teaching today and remember well Lois talking about Mr. Swallender (always with a tear in her eye).

    It's not typical of this area to host something like this. I was stunned to find it is coming to my neck of the woods and immediately ordered a ticket.
    If this is to end in fire
    Then we will all burn together

    I believe Sheryl Ryan Nolan coaches in the Atlanta area and it's very likely she teaches beginner skaters, Learn-to-Skate classes, etc.

    someone please let me know if it does go on DVD in stores or on Amazon. How much would it be?
    Don't worry FSWer, someone will let you know, I'm sure!
