…All the Marbles (reissued as The California Dolls) is a 1981 comedy-drama film about the trials and travails of a female wrestling tag team and their manager. The film was directed by Robert Aldrich, and stars Peter F...展开alk, Vicki Frederick, and Laurene Landon. Pittsburgh Steeler hall of famer "Mean" Joe Greene also plays himself in this film.
Among the young unknown actresses who auditioned for the film, but did not receive a part, was Kathleen Turner.
The wrestlers were trained by former women's world wrestling champion Mildred Burke.
According to Laurene Landon, while the film did not do very well at the box office in the United States, it made a healthy profit in foreign markets, and producers were planning a sequel, to be set primarily in Japan, when Robert Aldrich's death put a halt to the project.
The film is known overseas as "The California Dolls", because "all the marbles" is an American idiom that makes little sense in most other countries.
