Picks and Pans Review: The American Sportsman
For this episode, at least, it should be The American Sportswoman. Helen Reddy narrates an affecting documentary on the 1978 assault on Nepal's Annapurna, the world's 10th highest mountain, by 10 U.S. women. Though the climbers were plagued by illness and avalanches, two reached the summit. Two others fell to their deaths.
