A rather turgid and pompous movie, which was thought very
highly of by the Academy Awards who bestowed it with four Oscars, including Best Picture of the year.
It's a BBC-like drama about a Jewish and a Scottish
athlete who represent Britain at the 1924 Olympics.
Despite being incredibly overrated, it does feature one of
the most iconic movie scores of all time which is easily the best thing about it.
