Australian actress Belinda Bauer achieved her brief movie stardom in two interrelated 1979 films. She co-starred as the oversexed wife of nice-guy-turned-louse Jeff Bridges in the filmed-in-Germany The American Success Company (1979), directed by William Richert. The international backers of this film were so impressed by the results that they bankrolled Richert for a second production, Winter Kills (1979); again appearing opposite Jeff Bridges, Bauer appeared in the second film as his love interest. The actress' last top-billed assignment was in the offbeat "motorcycle western" Time Rider (1983). The same year, Belinda Bauer was among the supporting cast of Flashdance (1983), playing the wife of unfaithful Michael Nouri; seven years later, Bauer could be found halfway down the cast list as Dr. Belinda Faxx in Robocop 2 (1990).
