The made for tv mini-series "First Olympics: Athens 1896" is finally coming to dvd. This NBC made movie produced when the Olympic games were in LA (1984) tells the story of the first American Olympic team and some other athletes from Australia and Greece. While it may not be 100% accurate. It is a fun and interesting movie. Look for a young David Caruso...minus the sideways glare and sunglasses. :D


Here is an matte with autographs i have collected from most of the cast...Even were able to find some that haven't acted in years..

Nice timing: The Beijing Olympics open 3 days later.

Seriously, I remember catching bits and pieces of this on the Disney Channel and the old True Stories Channel and thought it was good, if a bit hyper US focused. An enjoyable movie though.

Its true that its US focused. But, they do follow the story of Spiridon Louis (Greece) and Edward Flack (Australia) pretty heavily.
