The movie was made and released about four years after Easy Rider
(1969). That movie featured two hippies crossing America on motor-bikes. Electra Glide in Blue
(1973) is considered to be a form of motor-cycle cop version of Easy Rider
(1969) with a poster from that earlier movie classic even displayed in one scene in this film. See more
