An interesting review of the documentary entitled "Ski Bum" on Warren Miller. His life was complicated to say the least. His mother and sister stole $100,000 from his fledgling film company and were never seen again. His first wife died of spinal cancer after giving birth to their son. For a while he was a single-Dad. His second wife loathed his workaholic lifestyle--focused on his company--and cheated on him. And his son's takeover of the company in 1989 was anything but happy.

Yet he lived until 94..never smoked or drank. He sacrificed a normal life to give us great movies and promoted the sport more than almost anyone.
