The Breakaway was Tonya Harding's big screen debut and although very hard to get a hold of, it is very good. If you can't find it at Blockbuster or other video stores order it here. It did air on Cinemax a while back and surely will be repeated sometime in the future for those who wish to tape it. One of these days it'll end up being a Saturday matinee on your local UHF station. Anyway below is a list of the cast and crew along with a description.


This actioner features notorious figure skater Tonya Harding in a supporting role. The story really centers on Myra, a courier for the Mafia, who after seven years of dangerous work, wants to take her $300,000 and split. She is accompanied by Dan, and is pursued by a dogged hitman determine to kill her. He comes close to getting her after Myra's boy friend Carter tips him off. He ends up with the loot which he stashes in the apartment of his second girl friend, Gina.
