Streets of Gold ★★½ 1986 (R)

Brandauer is good as a Soviet boxer who defected and now washes dishes in Brooklyn. He trains a pair of street youngsters in the hope of beating his old coach in the Olympics. “Rocky” -like in the boxing, and in the rags-to-riches optimism. 94m/C VHS . Klaus Maria Brandauer, Adrian Pasdar, Wesley Snipes; D: Joe Roth; W: Richard Price, Heywood Gould, Tom Cole; C: Arthur Albert; M: Jack Nitzsche.
