I've seen "Goldengirl" and when it ended I felt like I had sat through a truncated version of what was once a longer film. I then found out that it was first intended to be a TV miniseries, and a longer cut was even broadcast in a three-hour time slot on NBC in 1981:
Yes, it looks like this was held back specifically to include extras, which is a great idea because this film has an interesting history that should be addressed. But I guess they weren't to locate - or they did but couldn't include - the TV cut or the additional scenes from it.
Hey guys this is a great disc! It's got a great score and song by Conti, and he even co-wrote the lyrics. It also has a special feature of Conti talking about his career highlights. There's also a special feature with Susan Anton who says nice things about Conti. I haven't listened to the commentary yet though.
