Here’s a pretty cool photo-set featuring famous people rollerskating!

Some of the photographs are taken from a wide variety of films with rollerskating themes or scenes such as 1972’s Kansas City Bomber and 1968’s Funny Girl, with Raquel Welch and Barbra Streisand respectively. However, the photo-set doesn’t include only film stars but also famous singers and musicians such as Cher, Sandy West of The Runaways, Grace Jones, Judas Priest and many more.

One thing is for sure – they all rocked their roller skates!
