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)
