Geordie is a very small boy who feels that the girl he loves is ignoring him because of his size. He decides to take a correspondence course in body-building. At 21, Geordie becomes one of the tallest and strongest men in Scotland.
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

I only wish, McTaggart, that you had acquired as much in knowledge as much as you have in height and weight. Nevertheless you have managed to obtain your school leaving certificate.

With the 2000 Olympics in Australia, it's time to bring this back on VHS/DVD
I remember this movie vividly from the 1950's when I saw it once. It has never been on tape and should be, especially with the 200 Olympics in Australia. This is a very enjoyable film about a SMALL young boy who takes a body building course by correspondence and grows up to represent Scotland in the hammer throw in the Melbourne Olympics in 1956. It is time to bring it back.
