Thinking About the Olympics

NY Times has a brief commentary on Chariots of Fire, a movie based on the true story of two runners competing in the 1924 Olympics. If you've never seen the film, what better time than now? Go rent it tonight! And let me know if you liked it or not.

I saw it in a 16-seat theater on a resort military island off of the Philippines in the early '80s and then again just recently here on t.v. Loved it.

We have it on video and have watched it many times. It is right at the top of my list of favourite movies. (I should buy it on DVD!)

I have not seen Chariots in years. maybe I need to revisit that movie.

I love Murphy about town. my dog, too, will not sit still for a photo op. Just not interested in the publicity I guess.

Oh I love Chariots of Fire--it is in my personal DVD collection.
From the moment the music starts, the runners slo-mo on the beach, etc. I just love it.
It presents a very idealized kind of Olympics.
