Alternate Versions

Director Sandy Harbutt's original theatrical cut ran 132 minutes, but it is reported that he was relatively unhappy with this version. When optioned for video release by Roadshow Home Video (a division of Roadshow Film Distributors) Harbutt requested that he be able to re-cut his film so that it reflected his original vision. The original Australian video release (circa 1985) runs 98 minutes and carries a "Director Approved" message coupled with Harbutt's signature. It is this significantly shorter "Director's Cut", inclusive of Premium Film's 1995 21st Anniversary re-release, that has replaced all previous versions of the film. See more »

My view of the movie
11 January 2004 | by mancunian4510See all my reviews

This movie did become something of a cult classic in the 70's, unlike a lot of people passing comment, I remember it well. Just to clarify something one of your other members had stated.....bikers did like the movie with cinemas in all capital cities being swamped by bikers. I was in Adelaide at the time and clearly recall Rundle Street, before it became a mall, with bikes on both sides of the street from King William Street to Pulteney(?). Some things fade over time, maybe the movie will be one of them but it brings back fond memories of my youth, mispent that it was.
