Coming in 2012. Teaser @ http://www.glowthemovie.com/

GLOW: The Story of The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling chronicles the rise and fall of the first ever all-female wrestling show through the stories of those who lived it.

From the initial open-call auditions, to the grueling training with wrestling legend Mando Guerrero, to over-night success and global recognition, to the shows sudden and unexpected cancellation in 1990, the GLOW girls recall their time on the show with a mixture of heartfelt nostalgia and tearful regret over injuries and the loss of friends. For some, the show was a brief foray into acting and a short-lived adventure on the way to a normal life. For others, that brief time in GLOW would impact and influence their lives for years to follow. For all of the women, working on GLOW was a unique and exciting experience that will bond them forever.


This was huge in our house when we were kids. Farmers Daughter please!

Looks like you stumped the band with that one Larry. I won't post the urbandictionary definition of Glord... might get me thrown into a sensitivity training class.

I didn't look to see if it meant anything. I wrote it to mean "Glorious Ladies of Roller Derby"!

Yeah I tried for a while to define RD, but nothing came to mind.

I could name a few names from back in the early days of Roller Derby. Fun times! Philadephia Warriors were my home team.

I think I remember that too. Unless I'm thinking of this:




Larry, I couldn't figure out GLORD either and was defintely on the wrong path. Ha! RD is still pretty popular around here. I'd like a Whip It but with the real thing.

I lived outside Philly in my younger years where I remember watching Roller Derby.

There were actually two leagues if I'm not mistaken. Roller Games had teams like the Warriors, and Roller Derby IIRC took themselves more seriously. I didn't watch that too much. Not enough fake drama. Jim Trotter, Buddy Atkinson, Judy Arnold on the women's side were my favorites, and the most popular of course. Seen on TV on WPHL 17 (Roller Derby) and channel 48 (Roller Games). Channel 48 was also the first TV station that I can recall that aired what later became WWF wrestling. Bruno Samartino was the champion when I started watching. George (The Animal) Steele was his nemesis IIRC. Anyway, sorry for the somewhat OT rabblings here wizzack. Re-living my childhood a bit.

No way you're bringing back the memories. I definitely remember that one roller derby show. It was WWF on skates with all the personalties.

PHL17 was awesome back in the day. A real treat for us was going to the diner on Rt 130 (NJ) and seeing Bruno and other WWF guys there eating.

Wow, you just gave me a flashback of the Marlton Diner. It wasn't on Rt 130, I don't think, but... many years ago.

Ha! Jacoby's restaurant on 130 in... I forget. (Edit: West Collingswood Heights maybe?) Nevertheless, all you can eat seafood on Friday nights. Start with Alaskan King Crab legs, then some more Alaskan King Crab legs, then some more Alaskan King Crab legs, and BEER!

Owned a condo in Kings Grant in Marlton back in early 90's.

It was quite good. Too many obnoxious commercials, however.

+1 on the movie but was lucky and FF'd through the commercials. Mt. Fiji broke my heart! Seemed like most of the girls either used GLOW as a stepping stone or were at least able to avoid the pitfalls that consumed many WWF/WCW personalities. Great story with a touching ending.
