Trivia

The central character of Goldine Serafin is 6-feet 2-inches tall. The actress who plays her, Susan Anton, was 5-foot, 11-inches high, not quite as tall as the Goldengirl she plays. Anton once said of this: "It's probably the first time in my life that I wasn't too tall for something". See more »

Susan Anton - Sweet blonde angel
5 November 1998 | by LarkCGNSee all my reviews

Goldengirl may not be one of the films of the sport film genre, but it has a great female star - Susan Anton, one of my most beloved actresses and singers. She not only acts in this movie, she also sings (and surprisingly perfect!) - "Slow down I´ll find you" is the title song. I think it´s a brilliant showcase for Susan, especially if you want to see her statuesque body. Sadly this movie wasn´t that great success and although her career was promising, Susan never became a big screen star or even a Superstar at singing. But well she had a Country and Pop Hit with "Killin´time"(1979) , a duet with Fred Knoblock. And many have seen her on "Baywatch". So watch out for her in "Goldengirl" - she´s really sweet!
