Trivia

Writer-producer Joy Cavill once said of meeting Dawn Fraser for the first time when she was working on the documentary "The Dawn Fraser Story (1964)" in 1964: "It was just after the car accident in which her mother was killed. I read where Dawn would try for another gold medal, even though she had been in hospital and through such a tragedy. I thought it was a tremendous story, and I knew there was a much bigger story to tell - a much more personal story". See more »

Parochial, self-conscious, suburban drivel concerning an overbaked theme and presented by amateurish new actors together with a few worn-out small-pond veterans. Budget was low, and production gives the impression that the crew spent more time looking in a mirror than making a film. This film has been almost totally forgotten for good reasons.
