The Bob Mathias Story
Casting a biopic is usually an arduous process for directors, who struggle with finding someone who captures the essence and spirit of their true-life protagonist. This was not the case for Francis D. Lyon, who ended up working with the real Bob Mathias to make The Bob Mathias Story. In the 1954 film, Mathias re-enacts the journey that lead him to become the first man to win two consecutive Olympic Gold Medals in the decathlon.
