This movie's theatrical release was delayed. Principal photography was completed in December 1977 but this film was not released until March 1979, about fifteen months later. The picture was originally intended to be launched during the middle of 1978. Factors influencing the delay included, amongst other reasons, writer-producer Joy Cavill having an accident after post-production and Australian film distributors Hoyts Distribution wanting to release the film at a particular time of year.

This film is a bit pedestrian in its storytelling but it is redeemed by the beautiful Bronwyn Mackay-Payne as Dawn Fraser. She is also quite believable as an Olympic athlete and has a strong sensual presence. While this film is not on the level of Personal Best it is quite watchable and absorbing thanks to Ms. Mackay-Payne. I had hoped to see her work as the years passed but I have not had that pleasure. Was she herself an Olympic caliber athlete ? Since she was neither petite nor blond it is probable that significant roles were not forthcoming. If anyone has information about this actress feel free to e-mail me. I am a big fan of actors and films a little off the beaten path. So many films and TV programs feature young blond actors who can not act and seem to resemble each other.
