The film allows 8 directors to take a single Olympic event and make a short film. The best sequences are the weight lifters and the high jump. This is first class, old school documentary filmmaking and comes from the David Wolper school of elegant documentary cinema.

This 1974 Golden Globe-winner (for Best Documentary) is a beautiful film, made in a very artistic way by a group of world-renowned movie directors. It may be the best of all such Olympic documentaries, and is my favorite for sure, esp. since the outstanding 1972 Munich Olympic Games were my favorite Games--the horrible murder of the Israeli athletes by Palestinians, and the highly political officiating, notwithstanding.

From a technical perspective, this DVD is NOT 1.33:1 aspect ratio as advertised on Amazon; in fact, it's a WONDERFUL 16:9 widescreen-enhanced version, filling up a 16x9 screen without any black bars. The picture quality is SO superb that it looks darned close to high-definition on my HD screen, instead of looking soft-focus and poor on an HD TV (since it is only a DVD after all, and not a blu ray). No, the picture quality of this obviously remastered DVD is just outstanding when compared with the commercially-made VHS tape of years ago, which I own as well.

I highly recommend this DVD on every basis!

This was made by 8 different directors... Much better than the Bud Greenspan era of formulas. Marred by the murder of the Israeli athletes.h
