Description by OLDIES.com:
ALL THE MARBLES, produced at a time when female wrestling was popular only with a very limited audience, is a hilarious foray into the world of fringe sports. The performances of London and Frederick allow the film's protagonists to come across as original and sincere heroes, and Falk deploys his trademark deadpan humor while imbuing his portrayal of Harry with an endearingly shabby dignity. ALL THE MARBLES, Aldrich's final film before his death in 1983, is a satire with plenty of engagingly over-the-top wrestling scenes; the color, flair, and pacing of a three-ring circus; and the director's last unsentimental sprinkling of humanity and soul.

i loved this movie the first time i saw it and still like it every time i watch it. Filmed when wrestling was still "real" this gives a look at the lifestyle of an up and coming tag team in women's wrestling. Probably a lot closer to reality than anyone knew. great movie.
