Le Mans - Steve McQueen as a racing driver competing in the grueling 24 hour race - awesome 'slo-mo' crash sequence.
Chariots of Fire - The Brits vs. the Americans at the Paris Olympics in the 20s - won Oscars.
Gregory's Girl - charming footy chick-flick - girl overcomes prejudice to become the best footballer in her school - the 'Bend it Like Beckham' of it's day.
Man, proud man, drest in a little brief authority, most ignorant of what he’s most assured,
his glassy essence, like an angry ape, plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven,
as makes the angels weep.
William Shakespeare (anticipating George W Bush?)
