Chariots of Fire (1981)
Nigel Davenport: Lord Birkenhead
Duke of Sutherland : A sticky moment, George.
Lord Birkenhead : Thank God for Lindsay. I thought the lad had us beaten.
Duke of Sutherland : He did have us beaten, and thank God he did.
Lord Birkenhead : I don't quite follow you.
Duke of Sutherland : The "lad", as you call him, is a true man of principles and a true athlete. His speed is a mere extension of his life, its force. We sought to sever his running from himself.
Lord Birkenhead : For his country's sake, yes.
Lord Birkenhead : No sake is worth that, least of all a guilty national pride.
