Well, I managed to find some parts of Squaw Valley 1960 movie. Official movie is longer than this 28 minutes.

 

 

And here is an interesting part about biathlon at those games. Some of the comments that spokesman of the movie says here are quite funny. :d

at that time the doping was legal

 

And that's because it didn't exist. :p

Perhaps "Olympic History" would be a better name for the thread. Doesn't necessarily has to be a video. :)

 

2006 Torino movie is also one of my favourties. Though, my absolute favourite is Squaw Valley 1960 movie, but I can't find that on the internet (watched it on TV too few years ago). I only managed to find some parts about figure skating.

 

Any title about Olympics is perfect :d

IOC started to publish Olympic stories/history videos on their channel, let's hope they will publish Squaw Valley and all the rest Olympics :d

I have the whole official IOC collection of Winter & Summer Olympics movies on dvds (from 1952, without Munich 1972), nice one. Plus i`m recording whole Olympic Games since 2000 (summer games), sure i`m making short versions after that. I`m recording Winter Games on a bigger scale since 2010 when we became stronger (winter games are far less important for me)

1952 Summer Olympics? Interesting :clap:

1948 Olympic marathon was probably one of the most interesting ever.

Most of the Olympic movies are very "by the book", but I just watched on TV the Barcelona 1992 film and I like it very much, especially because of its "unconventional" style. Certainly one of my favourites now.

 

 

Brazilian channel SporTV also has an interesting show called "Classic" in which they're showing full replays of past Olympics events. After the 1992 movie, they had the Basketball final between USA and Croatia.
