XIVth Olympiad: The Glory of Sport
Directed by Castleton Knight • 1948 • United Kingdom
The official film of the Games of the XIV Olympiad London 1948 is the first in color and seeks to comprise both the winter and summer events from that year. The coverage of the sports cannot be faulted, as cinematographer Stanley Sayer marshaled his team of cameramen with a keen eye and deft precision.
