The Flipside: The Games + Q&A

Michael Winner recalls the making of The Games (1969), his globe-trotting drama of Olympic intrigue starring Michael Crawford, Charles Aznavour and Ryan O'Neal.

Winner explains how he managed to give the impression of a packed stadium in the days before digital technology and tells anecdotes (not always complementary) about the off-screen behaviour of his stars and his wrangles with the Olympic committee.
