THE WORLD'S GREATEST ATHLETE

year: 1973 cast: Jan-Michael Vincent, John Amos, Tim Conway rating: ***1/2
John Amos and Tim Conway, the most strangely cast comedic duo in history, are coaches at a loser junior college full of extremely inept athletes: making the team from GUS seem like professionals. The duo take a trip to Africa and find the greatest athlete in the world... and get this, he's white!

A young ripped Jan-Michael Vincent plays Nanu, a monotone-speaking Tarzan who Amos and Conway trick into returning to the States to monopolize the school's teams... and gain them a reputation as awesome coaches.

There are really no strong antagonists like most Disney films, just a selfish businessmen (and his son), and a witch doctor who causes Vincent to lose his athletic abilities for a while.

Tim Conway has one solo scene as he's shrunk to the size of an insect and has to escape from a martini glass, but mostly the film centers on Amos, Vincent, and a huge loveable tiger.
