Round and round they go. Where theyll crash, nobody knows! Filmed when Roller Derby was one of TVs most watched programs, The Fireball blazes by with three Hollywood legends (Mickey Rooney, Pat OBrien, Marilyn Monroe) and its slam-em-over-the-handrail, roller-speedway realism. Rooney is the me-first kid who knocks the banked-oval world on its keester and later rediscovers his humanity when life decks him with a hard-right called polio. OBrien, in his familiar clerics collar, looms like a stricken conscience as he regards the kids ballooning arrogance. And in a small role, Monroe gives notices of what is to be, standing out like a luminous flower in crowd segments and turning dialogue into honey in other scenes. Grab the popcorn, movie fans. Time for stargazing. **Please be aware that this is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.
