Wild Rebels (1967)
30 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 1967 biker-flick written and directed by William Grefe turns out to be a real sleeper; truly one of the top 5 biker films ever made.

Filmed around south Florida in such famous local hot-spots as Trader John's, Palm Beach Fairgrounds Speedway, and the old lighthouse in Lighthouse Point, this action/comedy/drama stars Elvis-wanna-be Steve Alaimo as "Hot" Rod Tillman,an embittered drag-strip racer who "falls-in" with an outlaw motorcycle gang.

An impressively "hip" 60's musical score by Al Jacobs, with songs by The Birdatchers (who look exactly like the Monkees) and Steve Alaimo, make this one of the best soundtracks of any "B" film. Alaimo does his best "Elvis" and is impressive singing, " You Don't Love Me".

Former world light-heavyweight boxing champion Willie Pastrano gives a "good" performance as a sadistic biker named Banjo. The former boxer would later team up with Alaimo & director Grefe to make Alligator Alley (aka The Hooked Generation) and the Naked Zoo.

Grefe has a strong cast of local south Florida "cult" acting legends; Seymour Eisenfeld, Art Barker(Mission Mars), Robert Freund, and Walter Philbin(Alligator Alley).

The Wild Rebels is filled with such "cult" famous lines as, "Dig the cat at the bar ", "Hi. Handsome"," I don't know what's going on, but I don't like it", " No creeps are allowed to touch her", and " Let me have a beer. What kind? A cold one!". With lines like this, it's a wonder this film didn't win an Oscar for best screenplay!

In an uncredited role, 1960's stock car legend Bobby Brack provided the stunt driving for Steve Alaimo in the film's racing scenes at the Palm Beach Fairgrounds Speedway.

So, if you like drag races, bar-room brawls, hip lingo, biker gangs, car chases,singing race car drivers, and "great" one-liners, you will enjoy The Wild Rebels. A 10!
