Chariots of Fire
Blu-ray Book ($35.99)

With its title rooted in both a Bible verse and a sonnet by English poet William Blake, “Chariots of Fire” swept four Academy Awards in 1982, including Best Picture. The inspiring true story of two sprinters competing in the 1924 Olympics—one a Scottish Christian missionary running for the glory of God, the other a newly wealthy Jew looking to affirm his place in upper-crust Cambridge society—it makes its Blu-ray debut in a “book” package with nearly an hour of special features, including several documentaries, trivia, photos, and a CD sampler of the movie’s Oscar-winning soundtrack songs.
