A Million to One (film) movie scenes

Bennett is billed as Herman Brix, which was his given name and the one he used as an athlete while competing in football and the 1928 Summer Olympics.

Plot

After his father wins the Olympic decathlon but is disqualified for being judged a paid professional athlete rather than an amateur, Johnny Kent becomes a rising star in the athletic world himself.

William Stevens, the runner-up who received the gold medal after John Kent was stripped of it, has a daughter, Joan, who begins seeing young Johnny socially while he trains. The distraction she causes, combined with a rivalry with Duke Hale in competition both in sports and for the girl, complicates matters as Johnny's quest continues.
