Concerned about his small stature, a young Scottish boy applies for a mail-order body building course, successfully gaining both height and strength. At the age of 21, he displays a talent for hammer-throwing, and is selected to represent Britain in the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia. Written by

The film throughout shows an innocence of the time which has been lost. The old house with the stairs to the bedrooms still sticks in my memory all these years latter. The plot could be used at any time in history but all of the scenery, comments, expressions are unique to this wonderful film and to a time long gone.
