Here's a couple of other movies that fit within the motif:

SKATETOWN, U.S.A. (1979)  Good cast for such an outing + some groovy music. 

SEX RINK (1976)  Yes, it's a porno involving people doinking while rollerskating.  How bad could it be?  :)  Directed by Ray Dennis Steckler.

Is Cameron Mitchell in that one?

No.  CAMERON MITCHELL was in the 1982 adult/softcore movie IT'S CALLED MURDER, BABY (softcore title)/DIXIE RAY, HOLLYWOOD STAR (hardcore title).   'Mainstream' actor Buck Kartalian was in it, too.

I noted that particular film -- at least the softcore version -- used names like 'Judy Carr' (Juliet Anderson) and 'Lisa Trego' (Lisa De Leeuw) on the opening credits.   I reckon those are their real names.  (I've never seen the hardcore version, btw; the 'softcore' edition was released on 'Lightning Video'.  I used to have a copy of it.  The box art was awful, but the movie was ok).

I guess we have other movie theme delights to look forward to as programming bundles like SWEEPING FLOORS and RIDING AN ESCALATOR and let's not forget CARRYING A GROCERY BAG!

Honestly these kinds of "bundles" make absolutely no sense to me. What's the point? Cute only goes so far.

If there is any point at all, it's that the human imagination has sharp limits, especially when inspiration comes in the form of a paycheck and an eight hour shift.

Ray Dennis Stickler!!!  Aka Cash Flagg!!!

One of my sleaz cheese movie maker icons! 🤓   

How bad could it be? Knowing my man Ray/Cash it's probably beyond the scale of normal stink.  His regular "straight" movies were testaments to Bad film. Throw in nudity and possible ****!? We're talking cross country milk truck with the refrigeration unit shut off levels of possible stink!

Underground needs to suck it up and air this one immediately!

Let's just say the James Caan/John Houseman/ John Beck one is the good one.  

And not sure if there is an Ooh-la-lah version of "Til the Clouds Roll By,"  but if anyone knows of it, please pass it along.

Thanks

I think TCM ought to have thrown in the 1977 movie SKATEBOARD -- see, the wheels on the bottom of a skateboard are similar to the kind of wheels on roller skates . . . so SKATEBOARD could fit right in. 

@CitizenEd:  I think 'Ray Dennis Steckler' used a variety of pseudonyms while filming those '70s pornos.  Looks like 'Cindy Lou Sutters' was one of them. 

SEX RINK!  Coming to a Tv screen near you!  :)

Rollerball (1975) is listed.  It's at the bottom of the article.  Here's the text:

Other films in our roller-skating retrospective are Modern Times (1936), I Love Melvin (1953), Kansas City Bomber (1972), The Unholy Rollers (1972) and Rollerball (1975).

 

But Xanadu is missing.. 🙂

Poor old Cam must have been in desperate, desperate need of money over the last 20 years of his life. He'd be in absolutely any movie that would have him.

Dixie Ray, a full-out porno, was why I mentioned him in the way I did. I'm sure you knew that, but others (none classic porn fans) might not.

Maybe TCM didn't fancy licensing XANADU from Universal . . . but it certainly would've been a fine companion piece to the other roller-skatin' movies. 

YOWZA! 

They have shown XANADU before ( I think as recently as last year.) I wonder why it wasn't included.

I thought that XANADU had aired on TCM in the not-too-distant past. 

This thread motivated me to find my old VHS tape of SKATEBOARD (1977).  I'd almost forgot where I stashed it.  Originally I thought I'd tossed out the tape because of a mould problem and kept the insert artwork and plastic case, but I found it and the tape was still there in decent condition.  So that was a relief.  A  'VISTA HOME VIDEO' presentation.   The DVD release of "Skateboard" is easy to find, but the mid-80s video release has mostly vanished.  I don't even remember where I bought the used copy . . . just that it was a long time ago when I snagged it for my video stash. 

ALSO:

ALDO RAY appeared in a porno -- although the hardcore stuff was not filmed while he was on the set (that's what he said about it).  So it appears he'd already shot his non-h/c scenes in SWEET SAVAGE (1978) and departed the set when the h/c stuff was helmed.  (Note there is a 'cable version' of SWEET SAVAGE.  I tried to hunt this version down on the Canadian 'ASTRAL VIDEO' label, but have never found it). 

IN regards to IT'S CALLED MURDER, BABY // DIXIE RAY, HOLLYWOOD STAR what I recall about was that it took place during the 1940s and the set decoration was pretty good.  Somebody spent some money on this film.  John Leslie starred as 'Nick Popodopolis', Private Detective.  The 'softcore' version might be better [I've never seen the h/c edition] because it is entirely possible the sex scenes merely slow down the plot.  → The director of this movie 'ANTHONY SPINELLI' was actor JACK WESTON's brother, btw.  The brothers' real last name:  WEINSTEIN.

Xanadu would have been a much better pick than Roller Boogie.

Either way, If for some reason(like gun to my head?)  I ever wound up watching one or the other, it would definitely have to be with the sound muted!  B)

I have an understandably foggy recollection from back in 1980 that some college bozo friends of mine and I went to the theater and actually watched "Xanadu."   Probably the line for "Urban Cowboy" was too long that night.    I think our reaction to it was to just sit there dumb in our seats and go "Whoa!?!"

I might watch it again now to see if it can jog some memories.
