The film sought to capitalize on the rollerskating fad of the ’70s and features Scott Baio, Flip Wilson, Maureen McCormick, Ron Palillo and Ruth Buzzi. Patrick Swayze had the leading role as the skater “Ace”, this was actually his first movie performance. The film centers on a Los Angeles roller disco called Skatetown, U.S.A., where a rivalry between two skaters (Patrick Swayze and Greg Bradford) culminates in a contest. The winner will receive $1000 and a moped. h/t >
