The Pistol: The Birth of a Legend

"The story behind the life of one of the greatest basketball players of all time."

This sports biopic documentary revolves around Peter Press Maravich, a famed Serbian-American basketball star from the 1960s and '70s. The film also features a great deal of Peter's father, Press Maravich (from whom Pete derives his middle name). The film was created on a exceedingly low budget, yet, despite this, was quite well received by both critics and audiences alike. Most of the movie takes place in St. Clemens, SC where Peter got his nickname "The Pistol," or, "Pistol Pete," and shows how his skills and career gradually developed. The Pistol received an official DVD release in 2005 and a Blue-ray release in 2013.
