Tells the story of British runners in the 1924 Olympics, but centers on Harold Abrams (100 meters) and missionary to China Eric Liddell (400). Liddell refused to compete on Sunday as a matter of religious principle, causing the story to gain international interest. The matching of the soundtrack by Vangelis to the movies action, especially the running events, makes a great story into something far more. Anyone with an interest in the conflict between personal Christian conviction and the secular world will find this entertaining and inspirational.
