Well, imho, there is a huge difference between what I am calling a movie (wild one, ER, etc…)
And a documentary . Which of course is what OAS is.

The Academy (which sucks these days) has separate award for documentaries . I don’t think a documentary ever won best picture or perhaps even nominated for one.
So it always kind of irked me when I hear OAS referred to as the best moto movie of all time.

Personally I think Marlon and Lee actually created American the motorcycle culture which endures to this day.
Of course they got help along the way by the AMA (which also sucks) when they came up with the 1% jive .
Think about the size of the “cruiser” (I hate that segment name. It sucks) market over the last 40 years .
Norton High Rider anyone? Victory High Ball?
Anybody whom ever ran straight pipes on a sportster or 6 over tubes on their BSA or CB750 owes it all to Brando inc.

That’s not to say that OAS isn’t a great watch . I like it better now than I did years ago . It’s excellent .
But the best moto movie ever? I question that .

Ahhhhh…..everybody, every generation has their own best of.  Like the annual 100 best songs countdown of forever on the local radio station every last Sunday in December.

Different winner every year.

Marlon might have gotten top billing as The Wild One……
but Lee Marvin stole the show imo.

At 2:40 in the following vid (is that a KTM truck parked on the left?), there is a clip of a woman riding thru the countryside.  Black leather.  I was told it’s actually a guy, stunting as a girl in a movie.

Anyone know the movie?

This is one of my favorites with one of the best lines ever.

"What are you rebelling against Johnny?"

"Whataya got?"

I've got this one on DVD.

I've seen that video many times and never once noticed the camper.

No.. I don't know the movie but would like to know.

Ya…..the KTM thing.   I thought all that was kinda vintage footage. Those guys riding past……must be some kind of “lost in the 50’s” club or something.

R.L. Burnside - It's nice to have some imagery to go with it. Heard it for years.

Roberts!
Sheen!
Maybe Baker or Ferrari on the 32.

And, as a side note about sons and fathers, i see Carl Fogarty had a father - George - who as an amateur ran at the IOM, and also made two World Championship starts at Silverstone, 1977 and 1979.

Qualified 26th in 1977, DNF
Qualified 41st in 1979, finished 17th.

I tell you OldIron, your knowledge of roadracing and street bikes is one of the most valuable things this place has to offer. And it is greatly appreciated. Winner of the Motogp league, you sure made that interesting also.
Thanks for being around.

Too kind !

I'm glad my affliction adds value to this experience! But without your efforts - we'd all be in the comments section somewhere.

I really enjoy all the discussions and insights from the board-member's long history and involvement in motorcycling.

Ditto from 2fat on Oldiron comments.
I truly look forward to sitting around the pickle barrel with you guys and picking up on what you’re throwing down.
We’re it not for Oldiron’s racing interest and postings way back in the CW days I don’t think I would of ever had any interest in MOTOGP.

Now it’s a staple in the 2Fat home and one of the things the wife and I look forward to together.

OK gentlemen, here’s the 3rd movie in this series, for your viewing pleasure.
I’ve never seen this one. Recommended by a friend, it’s more documentary than movie. But, looking for something
a bit in between the first 2 above, hopefully all will find it at least a tad interesting.

And now, on with the show.

Saw the movie One Week awhile back on Netflix. Unfortunately YouTube only has a trailer or buy or rent.
