Editors Note
Note In one of his most famous roles, Brando stars as the head of a savage motorcycle gang which terrorizes a small town. He gets his first real chance at a normal and productive life when he falls in love with a young woman who lives there, but a psychotic rival to his position as leader threatens everything.
Plot Summary
Summary Stanley Kramer's stylized portrait of America's rebellious youth is considered the original motorcycle movie.| Like a swarm of insects, Johnny's motorcycle club roams the countryside terrorizing one small-town after another. His gang of forty vicious hoodlums resents discipline, challenges authority and mocks convention. Riding into yet another township, they vandalize stores and trample private property. Meanwhile, Johnny romances Kathie, the pretty but repressed daughter of a local police officer. But when the gang spins out of control, an innocent man is accidentally killed and Johnny becomes the scapegoat.
Reviews
Total Film "...A charged bout of denim-clad hooliganism, this grand-daddy of biker films is as legendary as its brutish leading man..." 05/01/2000 p.122
Entertainment Weekly "Laslo Benedek's film was the occasion for a defining Brando moment....[With] a line that helped launch several generations of adolescent, anarchic revolt." 07/16/2004 p.29
Premiere "[Brando is] relaxed yet electrifying..." 10/01/2004 p.114
Uncut "[I]ts iconic status is down to Brando's camply brooding presence." 12/01/2004 p.183
