The First Olympics
Perhaps one of the most difficult Robert appearances to find besides Stalky & Co. and Lost Belongings, First Olympics was filmed in between seasons of ROS. Robert plays Grantly Goulding, a runner for the British team, who, although a good runner, is arrogant ... showing Pride cometh before the Fall ... He wins only to lose in a later round to an American runner, Thomas Curtis, played by Jason Connery.

It's fun to see these two together in this made-for-TV movie well before ROS Season Three was in production. And Robert looks so beautiful and graceful running and jumping the hurdles almost effortlessly in the first round. Thanks to
Fosforito for taking the screencaps.
