Tony Jacklin, from Scunthorpe, made golfing history by winning the British Open Championship in 1969 and the US Open in 1970 - the first British-based golfer for 50 years to win the American event, the first-ever British player to hold both titles at the same time.
Just over a week before he defends the US title this film looks at Jacklin, nearly 27, as man and player... and at the rewards and opportunities already gained by his success.
With Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Mark McCormack and The Jacklin Family

[Starring] Pier Angeli, Ethel Barrymore, Leslie Caron, Kirk Douglas, Farley Granger, James Mason, Agnes Moorehead, Moira Shearer

Three passengers on a liner crossing the Atlantic form the link between three separate romantic stories, one a tragedy, the second a fantasy, the third an exciting story of the circus.
The Jealous Lover stars James Mason as an impresario inspired by a ballerina (Moira Shearer); Mademoiselle features Leslie Caron as a governess whose life is transformed for a few hours by the magic powers of an elderly lady (Ethel Barrymore); and in Equilibrium Kirk Douglas and Pier Angeli are daring stars of the high trapeze.
