Trivia

Director Robert Kaylor and producer William Richert originally intended to make a more simple and straightforward documentary about the sport of roller derby. Kaylor and Richert decided to switch gears and focus more on factory worker Mick Snell's pursuit of his dream of becoming a professional roller derby player after Snell walked into a locker room during an interview with roller derby champion Charlie O'Connell to ask O'Connell pointers on how to successfully achieve his goal.

Painfully dull with fleeting moments of interest
22 November 2020 | by jellopukeSee all my reviews

The parts of this movie that actually show the roller derby in the late 60's was quite interesting, but all the stuff showing the white trash people's lives and the guy who wants to join was awful and boring as heck. For a dude that never took off his shades, the main character was super uncool.
