ICFS Presents: Kansas City Bomber (1972)

Presented by ICFS

Raquel Welch rocks and ROLLS as a rising star Roller Derby skater in this poignant portrayal of the hand-to-mouth struggle of beloved regional athletes and performers whose fates are in the hands of soulless small-time entrepreneurs. Welch is terrific, as is Kevin McCarthy, but other standouts include Helena Kallianotes (“Five Easy Pieces”) and Patti ‘Moo Moo’ Cavin as Welch’s fiercest competitors, as well as Norman Alden (“Electra Woman and Dyna Girl”) as the slow-witted, but kind son of a backwater pig farmer who gets recruited to serve as the team’s healer. Finally, though her role is brief, note how nearly fully formed Jodie Foster’s personality was even at 9 years old.
