The real president of the Oakland chapter of the Hells Angels is seen in the beginning of the movie and other scenes. He was a consultant for the film. His name was Ralph Barger. Also known as Sonny. See more »

I tell you what to think and when to think!
Don't tell me anything man, I'm not a member of your private army.
Well then Get out!
I don't need you, and I don't need your rules or your uniform man.

This has to rate as the third best biker film of the 1960s behind Easy Rider and The Wild Angels. As bad as the script is, it's clear that Jack Nicholson as Poet, an angry gas-pump jockey who joins the Hell's Angels is a star in the making.
The opening scene alone is worth seeing for any biker-film buff, as over 1,000 Hell's Angels on blazing choppers led by their leader Ralph "Sonny" Barger come rumbling down the California highway.
With a supporting cast of Adam Rourke(of Hell's Belles fame) & Easy Riders' Sabrina Scharf, along with "B" movie legend Jack Starrett as a tough-talking state trooper,the movie captures the "wild" days of the 1960s Hells Angels Motorcycle gang. The movie even has a "surprise" ending. With bikers, bikes, booze, and brawls, who could ask for anything else in a better than average "B" film?
