Q: What do you get when you drench a Hollywood set with an “incredible amount of cocaine,” add an in-over-his head director making his debut, a marriage wrecking love-rhombus, an actors strike, and a bevy of naked Olympians? A: 1982’s Personal Best. Slate’s June Thomas joins Dan Greenstone to break down this film , which stars Mariel Hemingway as an Olympic track hopeful, who falls in and out of love with her training partner, played by Olympian Patrice Donnelly. And while Personal Best is still a regarded as a landmark LGBTQ film for its nuanced portrayal of a same sex relationship, the film remains polarizing because of the way the camera lingers on the naked female body. June and Dan assess whether it should still be regarded as a lesbian classic and whether writer/director Robert Towne was a cinematic genius, or a lecherous old coke-head.
