Chariots of Fire (1981) Poster

Daniel Gerroll: Henry Stallard



  • Henry Stallard : [the athletes are playing cricket in the ballroom of their hotel. Henry Stallard is the umpire; Aubrey Montague bowls a delivery to Eric Liddell, batting]  No ball!

    Harold M. Abrahams : [desperate to get into bat]  Come on, Aubrey, the old leg-break!

    Harold M. Abrahams : [Aubrey bowls another delivery, which deceivingly appears to have gotten Eric out]  HowZAT!

    Henry Stallard : Not out!

    Harold M. Abrahams : What do you mean, not out? You could've heard it from bloody Bournemouth! Come on, Liddell, my innings.

    Eric Liddell : I didn't touch it, I swear it, must've been the crack of my wrist!

    Harold M. Abrahams : He's out I tell you, you're all deaf - deaf and bloody blind! Aubrey I ask you, for God's sake!

    Harold M. Abrahams : [No response from Aubrey, dramatic pause] 

    [punching the air] 

    Harold M. Abrahams : It's not FAIR!

    [the athletes break into laughter, Abrahams eventually joining them]
