The previous contributor is correct in saying that Ralph "Sonny" Barger, the Oakland President of the Angels, is in a short clip at the beginning of the film. But contrary to what is reported, Mr. Barger does NOT appear in any other scenes. The viewer will have to turn to "Hells Angels 69" for that, in which Barger plays a featured role. See more »
Early in the film, a biker takes a can of oil from the display of new cans and tosses it to another biker who tosses it to another, but it falls to the ground, making a distinct "clink" of an empty can, rather than a "thud" a new, full can should make. See more »
This Richard Rush biker film is better than the Wild Angels, Angels Unchained, Devil's Angels, Cycle Savages, The Glory Stompers, or The Savage Seven. First of all it has the beautiful and talented Sabrina Scharf (from Easy Rider) who later became a Senator or some such thing. Adam Roarke was always a good addition to low-budget films and Nicholson shines as the Poet (a somewhat reluctant biker to begin with).
None of these films is high quality, but this one has some refreshing scenes that stand out. A 6 out of 10. Best performance = Jack Nicholson. If you can find it, it's worth your time. Richard Rush was always been a good director.
