CAST:

PLOT:

The Black Rebels M/C roars into town after being kicked out of the local races for being dickheads. They get rowdy and take over the town. Johnny (Marlon Brando) gets involved with the town sheriff's daughter (Mary Murphy). Things go downhill from there. Kind of based on the 4th of July 1947 Holister, California party, but not really.

 

MY RATING.........."PRETTY GOOD"


COMMENT:

This is the very first outlaw biker movie. It was made when I was 3 years old. Kind of silly now, probably silly back then. This film was banned in England until 1968 WOW! Lee Marvin is great, Marlon Brando is chubby. Good entertainment!
