Six Pix: Olympics

Six Pix presents a sextet of movie posters representing a particular actor/director/genre. You pick the one you feel is visually the most artistic or best sums up the film.

The Six Pix of Olympics is about to begin—which poster will bring home the gold?


Included are: Olympia (1936); Jim Thorpe—All-American (1951); Downhill Racer (1969); Chariots of Fire (1981); Cool Runnings (1993); and One Day in September (1999).

A star-studded international field is represented here: Germany (Olympia); America (Jim Thorpe and Downhill Racer); England (Chariots); Jamaica (Cool Runnings); and the Middle East (One Day). Stepping to the podium first I have Germany, then the United States, and, finally, in an upset win, Jamaica. Irie, mon!

Which one do you think is the winner? Should I have included something else? Tell me about it below!
