Steve Alaimo's best Role!, 20 May 2005
Author: legwarmers1980 from United States

I'm a big fan of Singer Steve Alaimo. Wild Rebel's was his best on-screen performance.

Steve plays an "Elvis" type character in this movie. When he's not wiping-out on the drag strip, he's romancing various beautiful women with his singing talents. His two songs in the movie are great! As for his acting; he was excellent playing the role of "hot-shot" racer Rod Tillman.

The supporting cast is just as impressive. Former boxing champion Willie Pastrano gives a realistic portrayal of a sadistic and sociopath out-law biker named Banjo. The show was filmed in both Miami-Dade and Broward Counties, and you get to see a lot of the local scenery.

Wild Rebels is Steve Alaimo's best film!
