'''''Racket Girls''''' (AKA ''The Blonde Pick-up'' and ''Pin-Down Girl'') is an Creator/EdWood-esque snoozer of an exploitation film which exists only to show women wrestle. '''Forever'''. It was directed by Robert C. Dertano.

Fresh-faced and [[BoobsOfSteel large... muscled]] Peaches Page comes to the big city and is accepted as part of a gym's stable of women wrestlers. Meanwhile, the owner of the gym, who uses it as a front for organized crime, manages to get in trouble with "Mr. Big," and the subpoena doesn't help him in any way.

Not to be confused with ''Anime/RocketGirls''.


* AllMenArePerverts: The message of the film, apparently.
* AmazonianBeauty: Peaches. Ruby says she's built "like a 5th Avenue bus!"
* AnythingButThat: Joe's reaction verbatim to Scalli's threat of making him a peanut vendor again.
* AuthorAppeal: Shame on you, George Weiss.
** Par for the course for Creator/EdWood, if it's true he wrote the script.
* [[EvilVersusEvil Black And Black Morality]]: Applied seemingly without the knowledge of the filmmakers.
* BerserkButton: "She used to work in a cheap hotel room, now she lives in a swank apartment."
* BoobsOfSteel: Peaches. As Peaches jumps rope, Crow (as Bob Hope) remarks he hopes she's not on a fault line.
* BrainlessBeauty: Peaches Page.
* BrokenBird: Ruby, thanks to Scalli.
* BuxomIsBetter: Invoked.
-->'''Peaches:''' You know what they say: "Good things come in little packages."
-->'''Joe:''' ''([[MaleGaze openly staring at Peaches' breasts]])'' Not to my way of thinking.
* CanonImmigrant / LegacyCharacter: Timothy Farrell played Umberto Scalli in three films, including one a few years after this one (in which Scalli apparently ''died''.)
* {{Catfight}}: Well, it's female wrestling, but they take it to a whole new level when two women ''dressed as cats'' wrestle! Actually, less dressed as cats and more wearing crappy cat-masks.
* ChronicBackstabbingDisorder: Monk's loyalties are for sale, cheap.
* CovertPervert: Joe the Jockey when he's not being obvious about it.
* DumbBlonde: The female lead in this film is ''[[PinballProtagonist completely pointless]]''. She never even figures out why people don't like her horse race fixing, pimping, and all around criminally JerkAss boyfriend.
** She's supposed to be pure. She comes off as naive - to the point of being [[TooDumbToLive ROCK STUPID]].
** She has to be told how to use a towel!
* Creator/EdWood: There's a rumor going around that Wood sold the script to this movie to raise cash for ''Film/GlenOrGlenda'', which George Weiss also produced. There's a couple Wood standbys in it - Ruby even wears an angora top - and it certainly has the gender confusion that plagued him.
* TheFaceless: [[NoNameGiven Mr. Big]], who unfortunately was in this movie meaning he was always framed in the bottom of the screen and often in the corner making him look small and weak.
* TheIngenue: Peaches
* InsistentTerminology: Women's wrestling is a ''clean'' sport. [[SocietyMarchesOn It must be noted that during this period]], point shaving was rampant in college and pro sports, such as the 1951 CCNY scandal.
* KickTheDog: The male lead in the movie forces a woman into prostitution.
-->'''Ruby:''' He's the sort of man who would turn a evening's stroll from a recreation to an occupation!
* MaleGaze: Joe the Jockey on Peaches.
* NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: See EthnicScrappy.
* PrettyLittleHeadshots: Joe.
* ScreamingWarrior: Rita Martinez certainly doesn't [[ScreamsLikeALittleGirl Scream Like A Little Girl]]. At all.
* ScrewTheMoneyIHaveRules: The wrestlers in this movie labor under the mistaken belief that they're legitimate athletes and not an excuse for Jiggling. The male lead tries to get nearly every single one to throw a fight for him and none will.
* ShamelessFanserviceGirl: Peaches doesn't mind leering at her ample bosom. It's implied she enjoys it.
* SuddenMusicalEnding: There's no music ''at all'' in the film (excluding Peaches' outdoor training scene) until the last five minutes. Suddenly a stock music piece plays during the cop chase scene.
--> '''Crow''': Music?! Why now?! Why ''us''?!
* WorstNewsJudgmentEver: A bookie being questioned by the Senate--just a single politician (?), mind you--is apparently worthy of being broadcast on national radio. Sure, it was TheFifties, but The Kefauver Hearings this ain't.
* WouldHitAGirl: Though he's relatively lenient on the woman, who was skimming off the top. It's debatable whether Scalli is a {{Hypocrite}} for doing the ''exact same thing'' to Mr. Big.
