Editorial Reviews

No event in the ancient world compared to the Olympic Games. With Greek culture and influence at their height, the Games drew an audience of tens of thousands. At the heart of this documentary is an ambitious reconstruction of major events, from chariot racing to combat sports, involving stunt men, horse wranglers, 40 young athletes, and hundreds of extras. Experts from universities around the world acted as historical advisors.

I bought The Real Olympics and The First Olympics. Both cover the same subject with slightly differing information.
The Real Olympics does great camera work with athletic men, wow! The historical review is equally intriguing. No full nudity iin this video even though they say the original olympics were all nude. We will have to wait for that.

I really enjoyed this movie. I had seen an older version in black and white several years ago and wondered if this version would be as good. It was very good. The first American Olympians did us proud and the part about how our national anthem came to be is a great bonus. The movie mixed humor with fact and was fun to watch. This is an entertaining history lesson for all ages.

The book is difficult to find, but this vendor had it and delivered it sooner than expected. I will buy from them again.
