Innsbruck 1964 Official Film | IX Olympic Winter Games, Innsbruck 1964

More than one thousand athletes descended on the Austrian resort of Innsbruck in the Tirol, including a remarkable team from the Soviet Union, which topped the medal table as it had in the two previous Winter Games. Snow cannons helped to compensate for an unusually modest amount of snow on the ski slopes. Through the excellent commentary, Theo Hörmann furnishes his audience with useful details about each discipline, even the ideal line to follow for bobsleigh competitors. This appealing documentary revels in the folkloric traditions of the Tyrol, with brass bands and yodellers much in evidence.
