Plot Summary: In Robert Aldrich's ALL THE MARBLES, Peter Falk stars as Harry, a small-time promoter trying to break into the upper echelon of the wrestling biz. He thinks hes really struck gold when he discovers the sexy female tag-team duo of Iris (Vicki Frederick) and Molly (Laurene Landon), and he and the girls hit the road in search of fame and fortune.
Produced at a time when female wrestling was popular only with a very limited audience, is a hilarious foray into the world of fringe sports. The performances of London and Frederick allow the film's protagonists to come across as original and sincere heroes, and Falk deploys his trademark deadpan humor while imbuing his portrayal of Harry with an endearingly shabby dignity.

Aldrich's final film before his death in 1983, is a satire with plenty of engagingly over-the-top wrestling scenes; the color, flair, and pacing of a three-ring circus; and the director's last unsentimental sprinkling of humanity and soul.
