World Premiere, 6 September 2004
Author: ckjarrett

World premiere was held January 26, 1979 at the Iowa Theatre in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, under the title "Dribble". Photos from the premiere were published in the February 12, 1979 edition of Box office Magazine.

Description read, "a comedy about women's professional basketball . . . hundreds attended the debut of the $1.3 million picture which was filmed in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids."

"We chose Iowa naturally because women's basketball is very big here and the picture was set in Des Moines from its very conception," said DeGaetano (the director).

(DeGaetano) says he thinks it will be a sensation, basing his opinion on reaction to screening held recently in Los Angeles.
