About The Main Event

The Main Event box art

Barbra Streisand is Hillary Kramer, a bankrupt perfume executive who discovers that one of her tax write-offs from when her career was flush is prizefighter Kid Natural (Ryan O' Neal). Trouble is, Kid is now a driving instructor who wants nothing to do with boxing. Does that stop Babs? C'mon! She installs herself as the Kid's manager and tries to get him in shape to go the distance. A winning romantic comedy with Streisand in rare screwball form.
