Just in time for the summer 2012 Olympics, the surprise Best Picture Oscar winner of 1982 is finally on hi-def in a special Blu-ray book. Ben Cross, Ian Charleson, Ian Holm and John Gielgud star in this true tale of British sprinters Harold Abrahams (played by Cross) and Eric Liddell (played by Charleson), two very different men competing in the 1924 Olympics for very different reasons. Lidell, a devout Scottish missionary, runs for God, while Abrahams, the son of a wealthy Jewish man, runs to prove his place in upper crust Cambridge society. Includes a bonus CD sampler of Vangelis' music for the film.
