The Making of Hoosiers : How a Small Movie from the Heartland Became One of America's Favorite Films
by Gayle L. Johnson




Overview -
This expanded and updated second edition contains new stories, details, and images from behind the scenes of the beloved film Hoosiers. Inspired by the smallest school ever to win Indiana's one-class basketball tournament, Hoosiers interweaves themes of redemption and second chances, of family and small-town life, of having faith and living your dream. It's been called one of the most inspiring motion pictures of all time. But the story of the movie's creation is just as inspiring. The first-time filmmakers' goal was to create an entertaining, authentic, and emotionally resonant movie--within the confines of a small budget and a short schedule. In attempting to portray the intense devotion to basketball known as Hoosier Hysteria, the movie's creators took on an immense challenge. With the help and support of thousands of Indiana residents, both during and after production, the filmmakers saw Hoosiers succeed well beyond their expectations. This book takes you on the journey that was the making of Hoosiers, as experienced by the filmmakers, actors, crew members, and extras. The book concludes by examining why the movie still scores with audiences young and old so many years after its release.
