Below the Belt

0 Love It
A cheapo independent precursor of Aldrich's California Dolls, adapting road movie clichés to the women's wrestling circuit, which lacks - if you'll excuse the expression - the balls of classic exploitation. Baff (cast as virtually the same waif she patented as truckers' moll Janice for Joseph Strick) quits the urban dead-end for an apprenticeship of grappling gigs in the Southern States, learning the ropes before inevitably bringing an old pro favourite to her knees and the crowd to its feet.
