The California Dolls are hot, young and dirty (well, muddy). But although the gorgeous tag-team wrestlers may be wallowing in a down-market mud-wrestling bout right now, they have a dream: the championship match at the MGM Grand in Reno.

You would think that simply the huge popularity of wrestling in this country would lead Hollywood to consider again releasing this film on video or on DVD for the first time. This would be reason enough, as it has been in the past for way too many films that deserved to be ignored, like, say, those abominable spy films from the 60s rereleased because of the success of the Austin Powers series. But this is an excellent film in every way and merits release. The acting, story, photography, and the other creative contributions fit together beautifully in a film that will engage you, inspire you, and move you. Peter Falk, always superb, leads a female wrestling team through several years of struggle against corrupt managers, dishonest competitors, and their own emotional failings until they finally achieve the top position in the wrestling world by winning a final spectacular match. It's a journey you will be happy you took with them, believe me. Yes, this film will make you smile, cheer, and weep, but, mostly, it will make you see again that where there is hope, there is life. And we all need to be reminded of that, especially these days.

"...All the Marbles" for about the first two-thirds is a standard sports flick with most cliches intact. Even Peter Falk who normally elevates even the most mundane material gives an OK performance as the promoter of two gorgeous lady wrestlers. The film redeems itself immeasurably in the end with the showdown at the MGM Grand between Falk's Dolls and their chief rivals. It's a thrill-a-minute affair that's neatly choreographed that'll have you on the edge of your seat. Director Robert Aldrich's final film requires patience and you'll be rewarded in the end.

I don't uusually have much time or regard for movies about Professional Wrestling but this movie is an exception. It is about 2 struggling female wrestlers and their manager played by Peter Falk.This movie combines drama, comedy and pathos all in one neat package. I have heard that this movie is often hard to find at your video store but if you can locate then then I strongly sugest you watch it.It sometimes has the alternative title of "California Dolls" which both these ladies are.Peter Falk and his two protoges all give excellent performances and he proves once agin that he is a very versatile and fine actor who is capable of doing more than the TV Series "Colombo"

This is a good period piece. Peter Falk never is always good, as is Burt Young. The action is realistic and entertaining. Laurene Landon and Vicki Frederick are competent and really good to look at. Well directed

"All The Marbles" (or at one point called "The California Dolls") is one of our families favorite movies. My brother, can watch this movie over and over and over. I think he knows most of the dialogue. I hope this comes on DVD soon. I have a copy on VHS that I taped off of TV years ago. I did convert it to a DVD format, but still not the greatest quality. Hopefully sometime soon, the studio will release a DVD. Until then, I'll just keep watching my VHS or homemade DVD. Love the end - Double Sunset flip - LOL!!!

Yes this is a very fun and completely original story, with some very good filmamking. Just by the popularity of this item on EBAY and the outragous prices old video store copies of this movie is being sold for should justify a DVD release.

I have not seen this movie for some time, and I truly look forward to the eventual DVD release so I can again enjoy it and add it to my library.

Cant give it 5 start because it is a B movie, and there are flaws, but it's great fun, and even inspiring.

The California Dolls and their manager are upstarts in the violent world of woman wrestling. Harry, Iris, and Molly travel from city to city taking brutal fights for little pay. After winning a non title match against tag team champions the Toledo Tigers. The Dolls fortunes start to change. But as their fame grows a disgruntled promoter and the Toledo Tigers reemerge looking for revenge. The resulting `grudge match' could make the Dolls champions or end their careers.

My favorite thing about All the Marbles was the women wrestling. Vicki Frederick and Laurene Landon are very pretty and took a lot of punishment. There were seven matches in the film (3 against `douche schlepers', 3 against the Tigers, and one mud wrestling match). Burt Young had a small but cool role. And Peter Falk was great at playing Harry; a know-it-all that surprisingly knew what he was doing.
