Description by OLDIES.com:
In 1896, a Greek actress hungry for publicity publicly announces that she will marry the winner (her true love is a shoo-in) of the local marathon, but when a poor shepherd wins the race, the actress is forced to make good on her promise.
This drama, based on a true story, chronicles the exploits of a gorgeous Greek actress who decrees that she will marry the winner of the 26-mile marathon at the 1896 Olympic Games in Athens. It will be the first time the race has been run in 2,672 years. The actress does this because she is sure that her true-love will win. The real winner is a poor shepherd. Fortunately, the shepherd would rather marry another. The film contains actual Olympic Games footage. Much of the story was shot on location.
