Explorations: wrestling

Canada, 1961

Film
Please note

Sorry, we don't have images or video for this item.

A candid-camera view of professional wrestling as seen in the Montreal Forum, where some of the biggest bouts are staged, and in back-street wrestling parlors where the warriors practice their art. Nothing escapes the probing camera as well-muscled tyros grapple, punch, squirm, roar and grimace, adding their own variations of showmanship to amuse and excite the crowd.
