Streisand reteams with former real-life boxer Ryan O’Neal (her sparring partner in What’s Up, Doc?) in this romantic comedy about a cosmetics executive who invests in a prize fighter after her accountant absconds with her fortune. With no shortage of short shorts The Main Event was among the top grossing movies of 1979 thanks to Streisand’s star power.
