Storyline

Jack Brooks escaped the pogroms in 1923 and went on to become one of the premier speedskaters of interwar America. He skated with the U.S. Olympic team, and traveled to Lake Placid in 1932 for the III Olympic Winter Games. But his dream was cut short. Singled out because of the religion he practiced and the place he called home, the 'speedster from Poland' became a spectator on the sidelines. This is the story of his life, and the lives of the men and women who came after him. This is a testament to their collective fight for fairness, and to the abiding spirit that sport can and should advance greater understanding of ourselves and each other.

On Thin Ice - what a pleasant Surprise
3 June 2019 | by michelinmenSee all my reviews

I must start by saying that I came across this Documentary because it was on a list of other sport Docs and the graphics brought my attention to the photo for On Thin Ice. I was pleasantly surprised by the names and faces of the athletes that came across the screen throughout the film many whom were Olympic medalists. However, what struck me the most about this film was the raw honesty of the interviews that were given by these men and women and these are the real champions.
