"Winning the Olympic gold medal for the United States in 1948 at the age of seventeen, and again in 1952, Mathias would have tried out for the 1956 games. However, he was barred by the Olympic committee because he had starred in "The Bob Mathias story." He went on to become a well-known actor, then a U.S. Congressman. In this informative and entertaining documentary, we go to Mathias' hometown of Tulare, California, to trace his story. Bob Mathias, from his home in Fresno, CA, also tells his own story to filmmaker Dan Traub (his last interview before his death in 2006)"--Container
