Silly premise? Possibly. Silly slang? For sure. But let me put it this way. When you're a young girl of 13 and there isn't anything else around like it, not even Easy Rider, it's cool, Daddy-O! lol

 

The first time I saw this movie on TV, I hounded my mother for the money so I could go out and buy my first black leather jacket. I've purchased many more since, and this movie started my love affair with leather. :-)

?The Wild One? was made in reaction to the big motorcycle rally at Hollister, CA, in 1947. The film was responsible for a big jump in the national sale of black motorcycle jackets to teenagers.

"Just saw the movie "THE WILD ONE". This has got to be the dumbest film I've seen."

 

In its day there was nothing dumb or silly about it. All us teenagers loved it. It was tough, rebellious and cool. :)

But today.... yeah, it's dated, fer sure.

The process photography was terrible.

 

Almost as bad as Brando, who comes across as having some sort of affectation. At least he wasn't as bad here as in *Sayonara*.
