Memphis Heat Continues to Sizzle
Memphis Heat: The True Story of Memphis Wrasslin' continues to light up the silver screen in Memphis, held over for the 3rd consecutive week with over-the-top screen averages besting most Hollywood releases. Executive Producer of the film and author of the book the film is based on Sputnik, Masked Men, & Midgets, Ron Hall said, "We knew that wrestling fans all over the world would love this movie because of the incredibly rich wrestling history, the great stories, and the over the top action throughout the film, but what we didn't expect is that non-wrestling fans would embrace the story so positively. We are extremely pleased with the response so far." Young and old, black and white, Memphis has come out strong to enjoy Memphis Heat. Memphis Heat is a generational film. Malco Theaters continues to support the movie in Memphis with a regional run to follow. Memphis Heat features wrestling stars Jackie Fargo, Billy Wicks, Sputnik Monroe, Jimmy Hart, "Handsome" Jimmy Valiant, and Jerry "the King" Lawler, who just battled in his first Wrestlemania at age 61. The Commercial Appeal's film critic John Beifuss review: "Memphis Heat is entertaining from the first bell to the last."
