An okay short of teen ways, and it provided a future glimpse into the rebel roles and ways of Nicholson.
1960's "The Wild Ride" features legendary Jack Nicholson in one of his earliest roles and yet as it would become so common later on thru and during all of his career it is a rebel and rebellious type one. Jack is Johhny Varron a young punk of a teen type that loves to drink, party, and stir up trouble. Johhny is the leader of a California gang and he has a main passion for drag racing and just all out pure fun. Yet when his buddy Dave(Robert Bean)differs from the life of fun to please his loving girl Nancy(Georgianne Carter)a bitter and personal war is then directed at the female. This film then takes a predictable turn of the pedal to the medal with the chases of good against bad as the cops get involved in this wild ride. Overall this film is nothing great it's a very short work yet it's probably a must see and watch for any fan and enthusiast of the legendary Jack Nicholson since this being one of his early works it was good to see him portray a rebel type role that he would later become so instantly famous for.
