Please note: there were technical problems with both sound & exposure levels on the original 16mm film. KPIX Eyewitness News report from November 21st 1967 by Dave Valentine in Oakland featuring an interview with roller derby star Earlene Brown (1935-83), who is visiting with the New York Bombers. When asked to describe roller derby's attraction, she explains that: "I think this is what the public wants. They want to see blood and thunder all over the place! They'd love to see my neck broke." She goes onto demonstrate some of her blocking moves with the reporter and at one point exclaims: "What you runnin for, I haven't hit you yet!"
