Chills and spills in the fast paced world of motorcycle racing!
Howard Hughes' love of fast machines led to the production of this film, just one year after Marlon Brando starred in "The Wild One". Film centers around the rivalry of motorcycle racers, and the camaraderie of fellow employees of the Barton Motorcycle factory, who builds, and races motorcycles. "Daredevil" racing tactics (ride to win...at any cost!!) of Bill Williams character are questioned by female newspaper journalist who soon gets enlightened, and also does some enlightening of her own. A must see for early motorcycle fans as film is jam packed with vintage cycles! Also interesting to note: Howard Hughes penchant for having "busty" women in his films is made more than obvious in this film with cameras and women placed at strategic angles to fully accentuate the female bystanders shapes during crowd / spectator scenes in this film.
