Product Description


The year is 1986. Mike Tyson has just won his first title, the Chicago Bears are Super Bowl champs and unlikely rap stars, and Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling (GLOW) is about to burst onto the scene as the first ever all-female wrestling show on television. Like its competitor/frequent imitator the World Wrestling Federation, GLOW was a prime-time wrestling series, complete with elaborate characters, costumes, skits, personalized raps and, of course, wrestling. By 1989, the GLOW girls were an international phenomenon, attracting over seven million viewers worldwide, touring the nation and making big bank for the show's producers. One year later, GLOW was gone.


GLOW: THE STORY OF THE GORGEOUS LADIES OF WRESTLING chronicles the rise and fall of this hit television show through the stories of those who lived it. For some, the show was a brief foray into acting and a short-lived adventure. For others, their 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.

Great story, heart-warmer.
Brandon P.
My girlfriend watched this with me and she had zero connection to GLOW or wrestling at all going in and really enjoyed it too.
Anthony J Sullivan
Touching, tragic, and ultimately uplifting!

I could watch this documentary over & over again! The women shared a true sisterhood while appearing to despise one another on film.
If you are the type that is moved by a "real" story involving sports, comedy, drama, suspense and action, you will be glad you purchased this DVD & eagerly recommend it to your friends just as I have!

The quick delivery allowed me to totally surprise my friend before their birthday. Having participated in the documentary, I couldn't resist getting one for myself since the price was too good to pass up.

Wonder women Little Egypt, Lisa Moretti, Ashley Cartier, Hollywood and Matilda the Hun lead the cast of superheroines from the fun & violence that outdid Monday Night Raw in terms of energy and vibe. Everybody is on this DVD--and as intriguing in their civilian personae as in their ring alteregos. Wanna see hot chicks go after eachother with chainsaws; it's here. Beautiful but fearless with so many WILD
action sequences ovelay insightful commentary. This is what Wrestlemania should be and what Pro Wrestling is all about. every single major G.L.O.W girl is there- the Housewives/Heavy Metal Sisters, the Farmer's Daughter, Big Bad Mama, Lightning, Godiva, Americana, Suzie Spirit and you get to see Mt. Figi return in the suprising climax. If you haven't seen GLOW, you are severely missing out! Touching, tragic, and ultimately uplifting!

This is a GREAT documentary! A real snapshot into the early days of modern wrestling/entertainment. It covers the concept, formation, public face and finances of GLOW, and catches up with several of the women today.... All at once, it's fun, nostalgic, and (sometimes) heartbreaking. If you dug the late-70's/80's indie scene, and the very beginnings of WWF's rise, and especially if you were a Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling fan, you'll definitely dig this doc!

This is the best documentary I have ever seen! The stories of these women and there legendary strength of them is so awesome and the movie itself is so professionally done. There should be a movie made as well as to their GLOW stories and on the road tours they did, it would be even better! GIRLS ROCK AND THEY WRESTLE TOO!!! What a flash back to the late 80's!!! O:)

I loved this show as a kid. Campy as hell, though I didn't recognize that so much at the time. Loved the characters. Great to see what the gals are up to now. This was a great tribute. Unfortunate that the full seasons of episodes aren't available affordably, though after watching the doc I understand why. The extras are plentiful and really made this a treat.

I may not necessarily recommend this doc to people who had no recollection of the show (unless you are a fan of 80s pop culture or pro wrestling in general), but then again I watched it with someone who wasn't even born when it was on the air and she thought it was great.

As someone who watched every Saturday morning on WPIX New York in syndication, I thought this is a well-done film that gives fans a fun glimpse into what it took to produce the show and how hard the talent worked to make it a success. Special thanks to the stars and the filmmakers in case they read this.

Here they are! The Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling are back in the pleasing documentary "GLOW." In the mid-eighties, the campy idea of presenting lady wresting to the masses swept the world. This television endeavor established a colorful cast of characters (aligned into appropriate good versus evil camps) and made them entertainers, products spokespeople, and (oh yeah) athletes. The girls came from different backgrounds and had varying expectations, but were soon bound together in a one-of-a-kind phenomenon that no one could anticipate. This brief film (run time is only 76 minutes) can't hope to unravel the entire story behind this unprecedented journey, but it is good at highlighting the experience from the vantage point of the girls involved. Almost all the content is provided from the GLOW girls themselves and, as I said, that makes some of the more interesting aspects of the story left to speculation and rumor. But as a tribute to this new breed of entertainer, "GLOW" should more than satisfy those that loved the show and also those who are experiencing it anew.

One of the primary pleasures of "GLOW" is to catch up with some of your favorite characters. Not a lot of time, however, is spent on their modern lives. Instead, they share stories about the glory days. It's an interesting look at the rise and fall of celebrity, and the girls were smart enough to enjoy their time in the spotlight. Much of the film's first half gives you history with plenty of clips, skits, and even their infamous raps. It's an entertaining spectacle even today, so awful that (in many ways) it rises to the level of genius. But the documentary does have a more serious side as well. Many of the ladies are affected by the physical stresses of having a career in the ring.
