The Wild One

Digital Restoration

featuring

Marlon Brando, Mary Murphy, Lee Marvin, Jay C. Flippen,

Based on a 1947 incident in which thousands of motorcyclists, many of them recent vets, converged on the town of Hollister, California, The Wild One, originally titled Hot Blood, struck terror in the hearts of viewers. Johnny, the leather-clad leader of the Black Rebels, arrives in what could be Your Town, USA. Portrayed Methodically by Marlon Brando, this Johnny is a new invention, a mumbling, disaffected brawler who is in full-throttle rebellion; when asked what he’s rebelling against, he famously answers, “Whaddya got?”
