The 1955 film of a puny wee Highland laddie who sends off for a body building kit from the newspaper and grows into a gentle giant who makes it to the Melbourne Olympics, causes an international incident by insisting his kilt stays on when he competes, catches the eye of a glamorous Danish shot putter and lifts a car with one hand to save man’s life.
