There is a great feature article in the Radio Times related to Chariots of Fire.

Cut and pasted from the Radio Times:

The Real Chariots of Fire: the daughters of two British Olympic heroes meet for the first time.
Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell won gold at the 1924 Paris Olympics and became the subjects of the 1981 Oscar-winning film.


Unbeknown to a rapt Hampstead Theatre enjoying a stage version of Chariots of Fire last month, an even greater drama took place before curtain up. It was a historic meeting between the two daughters of the great Olympians Harold Abrahams and Eric Liddell, gold medallists at the 1924 Paris Olympics, on which the hit movie was based.

The digitally remastered Chariots of Fire is released in cinemas from 13 July.

Tom Cruise was one of the first actors I truly followed as a proper fan. Today is his 50th birthday. Happy 50th Birthday Tom Cruise!

Regardless of what people say about Tom, he is 100% self-made and he got to where he is today through his own drive, determination, passion and hard work. I admire and respect that.

There is a great feature on Digital Spy, listing Tom Cruise's Top Ten Movie Moments. Follow the link (trust me - it is worth it!):
