This was a series of low-budget films from Mexico that followed the
adventures of two wrestling women: Gloria Venus, later renamed Loreta
(played by Lorena Valezquez) and Golden Rubi (played by Elizabeth
Campbell). They combined elements of action, science-fiction,
the sexual titillation of women wrestling. There were six films
in the series. Three of which have been released in
"She-Wolves of the Ring" (1964):
An English-language version of the film is not yet available. In
Mexico, this movie is titled, "Las lobas del ring". It is a shame
that this movie was not released in English for America. It
continues the adventures of Loreta Venus and Golden Rubi in a
non-monster, action-packed story. The possibilities for the
Wrestling Women films were endless.
In this entry, the Wrestling Women run afoul of gangsters.
There's a lot of wrestling action, but there's only one real problem;
the characters of Loreta and Rubi took a back seat to the wide cast of
characters in this film. There were too many men and women
wrestlers to keep up with, as well as gangsters, and it took a long
time for the story to get around to Loreta and Rubi. They were
still the main characters, but barely.
The two female leads, especially Elizabeth Campbell, have really come a
long way in actual wrestling talent. Lorena's great, too.
The obvious stunt doubles are not as present as they were in the first
film. There was a much bigger focus on wrestling this time around.
There is also a good amount of comedy with Rubi's new, short Mexican
boyfriend, and the older woman wrestler who abuses her husband.
It can truthfully be said that the Luchadoras movies broke away from
the science-fiction/horror genre in this chapter, and that the series
was leaning more toward the action/superheroine feel.
