About this item
At the 1960 Rome Olympics, Wilma Rudolph became the fastest woman in the world and the first American woman ever to win three gold medals at one Olympic competition. But it is the story of how she got there that makes her achievements legendary. Wilma stars Shirley Jo Finney ("Echo Park", "Nuts") as America's first female superstar athlete, and captures her courageous triumph over the crippling effects of poverty, childhood paralysis, and racial segregation. Featuring an all-star cast including Cicely Tyson ("Fried Green Tomatoes", "Roots") and Academy Award(R) winning actor Denzel Washington, this film tells the amazing true story of one woman's battle to overcome the physical and social adversities that threatened to confine her, and chronicles her rise to become America's darling and an international superstar. Directed by the maestro of sports documentary, Bud Greenspan. Also starring Joe Seneca ("Malcolm X") and Jason Bernard ("Liar, Liar").
