THE ROLLER DERBY STARS OF THE 70 s ARE BACK! In the 1970 s, they were the most popular sports stars on TV, a bigger draw than Major League Baseball. And then, virtually overnight, they disappeared until now. JAM is the story of the American Roller Derby League, a group of veteran Roller Derby stars now in their 50's that are determined to make a comeback. For seven years, award-winning filmmaker Mark Woollen chronicles league owner Tim Patten as he pours his heart and entire life savings into a revival of this uniquely American entertainment. JAM takes you on an epic journey filled with unimaginable drama, bitter rivalries, heart pounding action and an incredible cast of characters you'll never forget. Hilarious, heartbreaking, inspiring, JAM is an amazing story about the lengths people will go to achieve their dreams.
My roller derby league is a member of WFTDA, which is nothing like the theatrical, banked, old school derby in this film. Read morePublished 20 months ago by TuneCollector
Extremely interesting documentary. Watch as a fan, along with several 1970's Roller Derby stars try to revive the sport. It's a true labor of love. Read morePublished on March 11, 2013 by Triple F
I'm not sure why people are giving this movie good reviews, it was terrible. I would gladly pay someone to take this DVD off my hands. It nearly turned me off of roller derby. Read morePublished on September 17, 2010 by Kelly A. Tanner
