Roller Boogie

Roller skating enjoyed a wave of increased popularity at the end of the 1970s and the beginning of the 1980s. The fad spawned several films which combined roller skating with then-popular disco music. Of these, one movie featured an actress already recognized in America. Linda Blair starred as the possessed child Regan in 1973's "The Exorcist." Blair made other films with various degrees of success, and became an animal rights activist in later years. "Roller Boogie" was panned by critics initially, but has become something of a cult classic for recalling that era of roller skating and disco music frenzy.
