I love this movie. Although I can't see how the hell Peter Fonda was able to get acting roles back then, guess it's because of his dad. He was good in Easy Rider, but in this one and The Trip, what the hell was going on? I like the soundtrack too, Davie Allan and the Arrows rock! The film has a good story line and is thoroughly enjoyable. Bruce Dern is believable, though he plays a corpse that is dragged around over half the film, still. I haven't seen the DVD version, and don't want to. Movies like this are best enjoyed when they come on rarely late at night when likely no one will be watching. The same applies with:
Psych-Out, Savage Seven, The Trip, Hell's Angels on Wheels, Glory Stompers, Cycle Savages, Rebel Rousers, Wild in the Streets, Hell's Angels 69, Run Angel Run, etc.
