    Favorite T& F Related Movies?
    #1
    Guest
    I'm just curious what everyone's favorite T & F related movies are (or movies that just feature T & F in them), and if there's any that I haven't found out about yet. My top five are:
    1) "Chariots of Fire" (could there be any other #1?)
    2) "Without Limits" (Tom Cruise's Prefontaine tribute)
    3) "You're the Greatest, Charlie Brown" (not really a movie, but lots of fun watching Snoopy pole vault!)
    4) "Higher Learning" (I've always been curious how fast a supermodel could run the 100m)
    5) "Run for the Dream: The Gail Devers Story" (Gail's one of my favorite athletes, so naturally...)

    'Wee Geordie' - a cute Hammer Throw movie, which was possibly inspired by 1956 Olympic HT. My fave t&f movies - Visions of Eight('72 OG) and Tokyo Olympiad. Oh,and of course 'Olympia'. For funkiness, Burt Lancaster in 'Jim Thorpe, All-American'. And, for sauna scene and Eugene shots, Personal Best.

    Run for the dream: The Gail Devers Story...

    It's one of my favorite movies, but I think that they should of had the 1992 Olympics 100mh event. other than that it is a great movie.

    " Chariots of fire" if you don't care about the facts. Good movie but they took a lot of liberties with the truth.

    Just enter "movie" n the search function. But hey, don't apologize. If somebody wants to play, they can play.

    And the answer is Galipolli!
