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 clichés, 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.
