American Anthem is a 1986 American Sports drama film produced by Lorimar Motion Pictures and released in North America by Columbia Pictures. It was directed by Albert Magnoli, and starred Mitch Gaylord and Janet Jones.
The subject of the film was a football player turned gymnast who was seeking to join the United States Olympic gymnastics team. Gaylord was a member of the gold-medal U.S. mens gymnastics team at the 1984 Summer Olympics.
Mitch Gaylords performance in the film earned him a Razzie Award nomination for Worst New Star, where he lost to "the six guys and gals in the duck suit" from Howard the Duck.
Steve is a talented gymnast who has given up competition and is working at his father's bike shop. Julie is the new girl at his old gym, who has moved to town to train with their powerful coach. Inspired by Julie, Steve resumes training. While dealing with the conflicts in their personal lives and the stress of training, they prepare for the US Olympic Trials.
