Scorpion Releasing, with StudioCanal, will be releasing director Joseph Sargent’s look into the unorthodox training of Goldengirl (1979), on 4K Blu-ray. Stars Susan Anton.
A deranged doctor tries to make a superwoman of his daughter who has been specially fed, exercised, and conditioned since she was a child in preparation for the Olympics. Also stars James Coburn (A Fistful of Dynamite) and Curd Jurgens. A new 4K restoration of the film.
This is a curious period piece, which almost feels like it’s set in an alternate universe – as history turned out, Russia invaded Afghanistan and the United States ended up boycotting those 1980 Olympics entirely.Jim McLennan — GirlsWithGuns.org
