What happens to stars of bad TV shows like "The Brady Bunch," "Welcome Back Kotter," and "Happy Days"? They end up in bad movies like SKATETOWN, U.S.A. This nonsense had the dubious honor of being the first film to cash in on the minor roller-disco fad of the late 1970s and featured such

great has-beens as Wilson, Buzzi, Palillo, and a host of talentless actors. The simplistic story has good-guy Bradford taking on bad-guy Swayze in a roller-skating contest. You'll know Swayze's the heavy because he wears black leather. This dumb excuse for a feature film is heavily padded out with

endless skating, dance, and comedy numbers as well as some really bad rock 'n' roll. Watch for an appearance by Dorothy Stratten, the Playboy Playmate whose tragic murder was the basis for STAR '80 (1983).
