Bill Smith's best biker movie
1 April 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

'Run Angel Run'is the first of Bill Smith's biker movies, and is probably the best of them--a simple, surprisingly moving tale. There's a great title song by Tammy Wynette--how can you beat that? And Smith looks smashing as he always did in that period.

Joan Didion's essay on biker movies in 'The White Album' collection is worth reading. I agree with her about the excellent photography of the West-and the best may have even been in the subsequent 'Angels Die Hard', which has some good songs behind the scenes of the bikers riding on the highway.

'Run Angel Run'is referred to in Smith's 1976 'The Hollywood Man', where he plays an actor similar to himself in many ways--and exactly insofar as both had made 'Run Angel Run'.

The supporting players, including Valerie Starrett as his girlfriend, are also excellent.
