The Wild Angels
The counterculture goes mainstream in this emblematic Vietnam-era classic. There would have been no Easy Rider without Roger Corman’s controversial but popular Hell’s Angels movie, which set the trend for a plethora of drive-in biker pictures over the following decade. Peter Bogdanovich contributed some second unit direction as well as tinkering with Chuck Griffith’s screenplay. Peter Fonda’s role as the gang leader Heavenly Blues was a warm-up for the game changing Easy Rider.
