MEDAL-WINNING MOVIE MARVEL

The number of nations competing increased to 44, with the star of the Games a Hollywood hero in the making. American swimmer Johnny Weissmuller won three golds, claiming two more four years later before becoming famous for playing Tarzan. Paris 1924 also later became immortalised in the Oscar-winning film "Chariots of Fire" – which was based on the inspiring story of British runner Eric Liddell.
