Roller skates in the movies

I like roller skates very much, haven’t used them for years as now I’m a bike and walk person but admit they have a kind of retro-kitsch feel that I totally adore.
Below a roller skate selection on the screen!



Xanadu (1980)
Ohhh... iconic.


------------------------

Roller Boogie (1979)
Amazing movie! Look at The Rapture’s video inspired on this film... groooovy!


-----------------------

Skatetown, USA (1979)
Love on wheels, cheesy outfits and Patrick Swayze on a leather waistcoat!


---------------------

It’s always fair weather (1955)
Gene Kelly tap dancing on roller skates is amazing!

Unholy Rollers (1972)
Playmate Claudia Jennings as a skating goddess.

and my beloved Anna Karina singing Je suis la rollergirl on Anna (1967)
