Historical drama based on a true story of two members of Britain’s 1924 Olympic team, Harold Abrahams, a Jew running to prove himself in the face of the subtle hostility he found in his British environment, and Eric Liddell, a deeply religious man who refused to run on the Sabbath. Academy Award winner for Best Picture.
