“AMAZING” says Jerry Seltzer, the Commissioner of the great made-in-America sport: Roller Derby.
“DERBY IS A FASCINATING DOCUMENT” – SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
As the television tapes of the sport’s early years were ultimately erased, this very special film contains the only existing footage of the Derby stars pre-1973; the greatest players and the greatest footage of the banked track ever photographed.
AVAILABLE NOW – 45th Anniversary Cut — A Roller Derby movie for Roller Derby fans of all ages, starring the legendary Charlie O’Connell soaring along with the greatest stars of Derby, with digitally enhanced sound and visuals and a new editorial focus on Mike Snell, the local boy from Dayton Ohio, who along with his family, provide a modern insight into a working class world that still exists, even if some of the workers and players are gone. The Roller Derby is the only one-man-created sport in history, as it was wholly conceived and invented in the 1930’s by Leo Seltzer in Portland Or., matured in Chicago, and perfected by Leo’s scion and much-loved promoter, Commissioner Jerry Seltzer, who continues to support his family business for the pleasure and health and the co-mingling of all human society around a fast banked track.
“Nothing compares today to the old days, even if thats a bit sentimental, except the dreams and wishes of young men aiming for fame and fortune –” says William Richert. “And 80 years onward, perhaps in a world Leo Seltzer never imagined, there is still nothing like the Roller Derby.”
Jeff Bridges, Belinda Bauer, John Houston, Anthony Hopkins, Elizabeth Taulor
