Kansas City Bomber (ii)
This poster features a larger-than-life Raquel Welch in her role as K.C. Carr in the 1972 film "Kansas City Bomber". This film was a drama about the merciless social dynamics behind the scenes in the sport of Roller Derby. Raquel Welch, or K.C. Carr, plays a single mother and derby star who leaves her team in Kansas City to play for the Portland Loggers in Oregon. Work, romance, and deceit plague her experience with her new team until K.C. Carr realizes her fierce independence is the key to her success on and off the track. Along with real-life Roller Derby players, Welch performed many of the action scenes in the movie, practicing long hours during filming and suffering real injuries throughout. The poster features her seated and suited up with a fierce expression on her face. Next to her is a series of film stills that capture her speeding past another player and elbowing her in the face in the process. The ferociousness of the last shot explicates the headline at the top insinuating K.C. as "The Hottest Thing on Wheels". Credits to other actors and production members of the movie are printed in the bottom left-hand corner beneath Welch.
