Participants121 from 16 countries
FormatPlacement determined by best scores on apparatus in individual all-around event.

Gold and silver went to the Hungarians Ferenc Pataki and János Mogyorósi-Klencs, respectively, with Pataki winning gold because of his much higher optional performance score. The two Magyars would also tie for the bronze medal in the horse vault. The bronze medal on floor went to Czechoslovakian Zdeněk Růžička who was the only gymnast to earn 19 points for both his compulsory (19.10) and optional (19.00) performances. Pataki had originally wanted to be an actor, but while acting he was noticed for his acrobatic ability and turned to gymnastics.
