Did You Know?


Although the film was a box office flop in the USA, it did reasonably well abroad, enough to warrant talk of a sequel that never came to fruition. This was largely due to the death of Robert Aldrich. The sequel was planned to be predominantly set and filmed in Japan. See more »


Harry Sears: Nobody hungry? I'm buyin'. Hey, I'm not kiddin' around. I'm really buyin'.
Iris: Real food? Or that junk garbage we have every night?
Harry Sears: No, no... Five blocks up the road there's a new Fatburger. It's fantastic.
Molly: For once, can't we eat in a place with a table cloth?
Harry Sears: It's OK with me but those frills cost money.

Underappreciated Gem
13 August 1999 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

This film will be dismissed by most viewers much like I dismiss hip hop music. With the recent revival of pro wrestling, it is a shame that this film stays buried in the MGM/UA film library. All the Marbles, is the story of the California Dolls, 2 very attractive lady wrestlers seeking wrestling work and fame in seedy blue collar cities and towns of Mid America. Their manager is Peter Falk. They hope to leverage their good looks and athletic talents into the major league of pro wrestling. This film had a first rate director, capable cast, and was well written. It was a shame that it failed at the box office. While lady wrestling is not currently mainstream, things are changing, women can be stronger and better trained and more and more people are watching wrestling. Weekly pro wrestling attracts more TV viewers than weekly baseball. Hey MGM, how 'bout putting All the Marbles back on TV.
