    Chariots of Fire
    Source: Amazon.com
    From an Amazon reviewer: "I enjoy sports films, especially when they are used to exemplify greater human truths. In that regard 'Chariots of Fire' is one of my favorite sports films. What differentiates this film is that it is really a human story about sports rather than a pure sports story. Based on a true story, it centers on two gifted athletes and their quest to run in the 1924 Olympics." (1981)
