520    In the 1930s, as the world hurtled toward war, speed was 
       all the rage. Bobsledding, the fastest and most thrilling 
       way to travel on land, had become a sensation. Exotic, 
       exciting, and brutally dangerous, it was the must-see 
       event of the 1932 Winter Olympics at Lake Placid, the 
       first Winter Games on American soil. Bobsledding required 
       exceptional skill and extraordinary courage-qualities the 
       American team had in abundance. There was Jay O'Brien, the
       high-society playboy; Tippy Grey, a scandal-prone 
       Hollywood has-been; Eddie Eagan, world champion 
       heavyweight boxer and Rhodes Scholar; and the charismatic 
       Billy Fiske, the true heart of the team, despite being 
       barely out of his teens. In the thick of the Great 
       Depression, the nation was gripped by the story of these 
       four men, their battle against jealous locals, treacherous
       US officials, and the very same German athletes they would
       be fighting against in the war only a few short years 
       later. Billy, in fact, went on to talk his way into the 
       Royal Air Force-despite their Brits-only policy-and was 
       there to fight the Nazis during the Battle of Britain. 
       King of speed to the end, he would become the first 
       American fighter pilot killed in WWII. The exploits of 
       Billy and his teammates make up a story that spans the 
       globe, from Golden Age Hollywood to seedy New York 
       gambling dens, to the most fashionable European resorts, 
       the South Seas, and beyond. 
520    Traces the efforts of four American athletes from 
       disparate backgrounds to win the gold medal for 
       bobsledding during the 1932 Olympics, profiling how the 
       American public, deep in the grip of the Great Depression,
       rallied around their achievements.
