Rosa Rubinsky is floundering in her life both personally and professionally. Small time radio talk show host Terry Glantz is the latest in the long line of her steady but not really committed boyfriends. And she works in a dead end job as a waitress in a sports arena. Bobby Fox, who sees her physically handle the unwanted advances of a co-worker, is a professional wrestling promoter who thinks she looks like a natural for the sport despite she being diminutive in size. Mutually parting ways with both her current job and with Terry, Rosa decides to give it a try. She is sent to professional wrestling school, and then on the road with Bobby's stable of wrestlers to watch and learn. In both situations, what Rosa also learns is that there is much camaraderie amongst the wrestlers out of emotional need as it is a lonely life. While some look for their soul mate within their traveling partners, others just want a body - any body - to keep them warm at night. She also learns the pros and ... Written by
Nice film, I liked it well enough to buy a copy to add to my collection. I enjoyed the realism the film conveyed. Some of my favorite performances were by Shirley Stoler, K.C.Townsend,Titi Paris, Regina Baff and Dolph Sweet. I found the music score very exiting and it seemed to compliment the film. Sierra Pecheur was interesting,as well as Annie McGreevey. Actress Billie Mahoney was interesting as was Jane O'Brien.I would like to comment a little about Mildred Burke. She was a pioneer in the sport of wrestling, and a world champion in her time. All in all an enjoyable film well worth seeing again. It is interesting to note actress Titi Paris is a professional wrestler and judo black belt. She is also responsible for getting Ladies Wrestling legalized in New York State.
