Movie Details

The story of famed performance artist Andy Kaufman's bizarre quest to find a woman who could defeat him in the wrestling ring. Footage taken from Kaufman's personal archives highlight his reign as the "World's Inter-Gender Wrestling Champion," a title that earned him the wrath of liberated females all across America. Shortly after pinning a female competitor on a 1979 broadcast of Saturday Night Live, the eccentric funnyman announced that he would marry any woman powerful enough to end his untarnished wrestling track record. Later, Kaufman traveled the country in search of a worthy competitor, taunting enraged females everywhere he went. Retiring undefeated yet reviled by women everywhere, Kaufman died from lung cancer on May 16, 1984 at the age of 35. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
