"Goldengirl" was one of many attempts during 1979 to transform Susan Anton into a major star. She was everywhere during that year, including television, movies, and magazines. The star-making exercise was unsuccessful, but this film is fairly good despite its obviously intended star-vehicle status.
Goldine (Anton) is raised her entire life by her father Serafin (Curt Jurgens) to be an elite athlete through intensive training and medications. Now that she's an adult, Serafin invites a group of investors to put up big money so she can compete in the 1980 Moscow Olympics. There's an endless amount of training, talk, and maneuvering leading up to the big race, but will Goldine win?
The investors feature several recognizable faces, including James Coburn, Harry Guardino, Robert Culp, and others. Leslie Caron appears as a sympathetic doctor who tries to keep Goldine from going batty from all the attention. The film is acceptable entertainment...even though the U.S. boycotted the Moscow games! Anyway, Anton is very beautiful (and her acting is good as well) and it's fun to watch so many famous actors in a movie whose plot line is not very demanding.
