The First Olympics - Athens 1896 - DVD Release - 0 views

  • The First Olympics - Athens 1896
  • This awe-inspiring and timeless miniseries about the rebirth of the modern day Olympic games stars David Ogden Stiers, Hunt Block, Golden Globe® winner David Caruso, and inclues guest appearances by Louis Jourdan and Angela Landsbury. In 1896, a dedicated group of men sets out to do the impossible: organize a global athletic competition in Athens, just as the Ancient Greeks once did. Faced with minimal funding, apathy and harsh opposition, finding a group of loyal and dedicated athletes is no easy feat; nor is completing their difficult journey to Athens. But the team's desire to compete - and win - helps reignite the Olympic spirit that had been dark for more than 1,500 years.
