Winner of four Academy Awards® including Best Picture, this internationally acclaimed motion picture recounts the poignant true story of two sprinters vying for gold in the 1924 Paris Olympic Games.
Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross), a driven athlete of Jewish ancestry, runs to overcome prejudice and to achieve personal fame; his rival, Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson), a devout Scottish missionary, competes for the glory of God.
An inspirational story of spirit and strength in the face of enormous odds, the film combines the finest elements of athletic competition and human drama to create a compelling and timeless cinematic classic.
