The Pistol Movie

The Pistol Birth of a Legend
The Pete Maravich movie, The Pistol: The Birth of a Legend, is the uplifting story of a scrawny eighth grade boy whose stunning basketball skills earn him a spot on the high school team! Unfortunately for young Pete Maravich (Adam Guier), his style of "showtime" basketball is way ahead of its time. Pete perseveres with the constant encouragement of his mentor and father, Press Maravich. The legend of college basketball's greatest scorer begins in the heart of a thirteen year old dreamer who soon becomes known to the world as The Pistol.
