Geordie is a slight of frame and puny gamekeeper’s son who feels that the girl he loves is ignoring him because of his size. He decides to take a correspondence course in body-building. At 21, Geordie becomes one of the tallest and strongest men in Scotland and an expert at throwing the hammer. His success story leads him to represent Britain in the 1956 Olympic Games in Melbourne, Australia. But will the new man that he is be able to charm Jean, his life-long sweetheart? Tall and handsome Bill Travers (BORN FREE, THE SMALLEST SHOW ON EARTH), plays opposite Norah Gorsen as Jean and Alastair Sim as The Laird (FOLLY TO BE WISE, ST. TRINIANS films) in this charming love story, set in the beautiful highlands of Scotland and directed by Frank Launder (THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF YOUR LIFE). GEORDIE is an adaptation of the enchanting novel by David Walker.
