When Helsinki staged the Games of the XV Olympiad in the summer of 1952, it became the smallest city to have had that honor, and Finland the smallest country. It proved a triumph for all concerned, and witnessed the consecration of one of the greatest track-and-field stars in the world, Emil Zátopek (Czechoslovakia). The two most influential Finnish filmmakers of the period, Risto Orko and T.J. Särkkä, came together to produce the two-part official film, with Hannu Leminen as director. Leminen takes a chronological, comprehensive yet brisk approach to the Games. The second part, Gold and Glory, covers non-track-and-field competitions. The 50-minute color film, Memories of the Olympic Summer of 1952, is able to capture something more of the enthusiastic mood of the Finnish crowds. Everything is more vivid--the Torch Relay and the Opening Ceremony in particular. The city of Helsinki is described in richer detail than in the two-part official film, the extended coverage of Zátopek's triumph in the marathon is almost as good as in the first part of the official film, and there are also extended scenes that were cut short in the main film
