Synopsis

Susan Clark here gave an Emmy Award-winning performance as America's foremost woman athlete who won two Olympic track-and-field gold medals in 1932 and went on to become a world champion golfer. The film traces her development as an athlete, her battles to be accepted in sports, her marriage to wrestler-turned-promoter George Zaharias (played by ex-football pro Alex Karras), and her losing struggle with cancer. In addition to an Emmy for its star, the movie also received a nomination as the Outstanding Special of 1975-76, and director Buzz Kulik and writer Joanna Lee were nominated for their work, as were composer Jerry Goldsmith, cinematographer Charles Wheeler, editor Henry Berman and makeup artist William Tuttle.
