New film ‘Head Over Heels’ explores wrestling at the Chase Hotel
For more than two decades spanning the 1960s and '70s, “Wrestling at the Chase” regularly drew hundreds of pro wrestling fans to the Chase Park Plaza Hotel.
That history is detailed in the new documentary “Head Over Heels: Remembering Wrestling from the Chase,” which will premiere on Nine Network on June 4. The film is based on Reedy Press’ “Wrestling at the Chase,” written by St. Louis historian Ed Wheatley.
Wheatley, who worked as a producer on the film, joined St. Louis on the Air to discuss the matches, the TV series and the documentary.
