Classic biker movies





















Biker movies appeared, often at drive-ins, throughout America in the 1960s and 1970s, inspiring one of the most iconic sixties-culture films, Easy Rider, many of whose actors and plot wrinkles figured earlier in the likes of Hell's Angels on Wheels, The Trip and Angels Hard as They Come... Among famous figures of this subgenre, exploitation producer Joe Solomon, founder of the independent drive-in outfit The Fanfare Corporation, specialized in motorcycle pictures such as Hells Angels on Wheels (1967), Angels from Hell (1968), Run, Angel, Run (1969) and Wild Wheels (1969) is central. If the story begins in early 60's, by the time the ground-breaking Easy Rider was unleashed in ’69, it seemed that the cycle movies had exhausted every possible narrative, even though they continued to ride across the big screen.
