Tagline: Two men chasing dreams of glory
A story of devotion, guts and athletic glory, with a fantastic soundtrack to boot, Chariots of Fire is the tale of the 1924 Olympic Games and two British athletes. Both compete for their dignity; Eric Liddell (Ian Charleson) runs in the 400 metres, and his rival at the sprint, Harold Abrahams (Ben Cross), runs to prove his worth.
The film is patriotic and class conscious, but this provides the spur for Abrahams to fight for acceptance. The prejudice is not just a question of birth or wealth, but of approach.
