The Other Side of the Mountain Part 2 is a 1978 film directed by Larry Peerce. It stars Marilyn Hassett and Timothy Bottoms. It is a sequel to The Other Side of the Mountain.[2] It follows a recovered Jill Kinmont who goes to Southern California and meets a man named John, who she falls for. But as they learn later, there is more to deal with than just a new romance.



The Other Side of the Mountain Part 2 was filmed on location in Bishop, California, and Victoria, British Columbia.


Vincent Canby of The New York Times was not impressed: "The first film, directed by Larry Peerce, who also directed the spinoff, was a slickly prefabricated bathtub of movie sentimentality, at the heart of which was a gallant young woman facing real handicaps. 'Part II' is really a 30-minute postscript to that story, blown up to feature-length by artificial plot problems and so many flashbacks to the first movie that the second becomes a sort of reverse trailer, a coming attraction for something that's already gone. ... Mr. Peerce's direction suggests a certain amount of desperation. You can almost hear him asking, 'What can I do to make things interesting?'"[3]
