Womens Roller Derby 1952 Here's about five minutes of the New York Chiefs skating against the Jersey Jolters in 1952. Roller derby is another fine, upstanding sport--much like pro wrestling.

When I was about 10, a classmate of mine went to watch the roller derby--live!--in a nearby city. He said he knew it was a put-on when both teams arrived at the arena in the same bus.

I used to watch roller derby back in the late 50s and early 60s. Man, was that ever fun!

NY Chiefs, Bay Area Bombers, Midwest Pioneers, with stars like Charlie O'Connell, Tony Roman, Joanie Weston, Ann Calvello, and announcer Walt Harris.

Those were the days!!

My memories of roller derby com efrom the early 1970s. The bi names in my area were Paul (The Bear) Rupert, Diane Severson, and Skinny Mini Miller. Every week a fight would break out during the halftime interview and the game would always be decided on the final jam.
