BEST PICTURE Academy Awards (1982)
An absorbing and unusual drama based on the true story of two men-devout Scottish missionary Eric Liddell and driven Jewish university student Harold Abrahams-who run in the 1924 Paris Olympics. Abrahams' Judaism figures significantly in the film, as he faces elitist antisemitism at Cambridge University.
