The sad truth about the couple and the way they lived behind closed doors is heartbreaking. What could have driven them apart? This couple met early on in their careers when they worked on the set of The Only And Only, Genuine, Original Family Band, in 1968.

A New Chapter

Kurt Russell felt that his meeting Goldie marked the beginning of a new chapter in his life. However, what happened to them during their time on set together is somewhat surprising.
