0 Love It
Save it
Worried he's going to lose out on the girl he's after, confirmed weakling Travers builds himself up and enters the Melbourne Olympics as a hammer thrower. An affectionate triumph-of-the-underdog fable from Launder and Gilliat, chock full of Scots clich├ęs, with Sim stealing every scene as the local laird and lots of familiar faces right down the cast list. From a novel by David Walker.
