This has been touted as being a sci-fi film, but it is really a mixture of off the wall science and action. As a matter of fact, it's almost impossible to classify.
Gorgeous Susan Anton stars as Goldine, a young woman who has been "created" to be an Olympic star. She has been fed, conditioned and trained her entire life for the sporting event and her father has perfected her.
A reporter named Dryden attempts to do a story on her and finds much more than he ever could know. Goldine has a lot of pressure on her as there are many huge financial gains that will make men rich if she wins.
However, Goldine has a lot of second thoughts about what she is and what she is doing. While this movie may have seemed very odd in 1979. it fits right in with todays sporting nonsense including steroids and such.
I enjoyed this film as much now as I did in 1979. It's just different enough to be entertaining and Anton is simply gorgeous. I cannot figure out why she didn't become a bigger star.
The rest of the cast includes Curd Jergens, Nicolas Coster, Robert Culp, Ward Costello, Michael Lerner, Leslie Caron and Harry Guardino. This is well worth checking out if you want to see something different.
