Geordie (1955)

Dir. Frank Launder / UK / Comedy / Colour / 93m

Concerned about his small stature, a young Scottish boy applies for a mail-order body building course, successfully gaining both height and strength. At the age of 21, he displays a talent for hammer-throwing, and is selected to represent Britain in the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia.

This comedy film sits happily in the classic British comedies of the 1940s and 50s, with a distinctly Ealing flavour in its tale of the little man who makes good.
