One man must take on a band of roving outlaws in this Harley-fueled variation on High Noon. Paul Collier (Cameron Mitchell) is an architect who has decided to ask his girlfriend Karen (Diane Ladd), who is with child, for her hand in marriage. However, during a trip to the beach with Karen, Paul is confronted by J.J. (Bruce Dern), an old high school friend who has fallen in with a motorcycle gang, the Rebels. The Rebels take one look at Karen and claim her for themselves, staging drag races to determine who will have the right to her, and J.J. is unable (or unwilling) to stop them. Furious and betrayed, Paul tries to round up the townspeople in hopes of outnumbering the Rebels, but he is soon forced to rescue Karen on his own. Shot in 1967, Rebel Rousers also features Jack Nicholson as a biker named Bunny; the film was shelved until 1969, when Nicholson's star-making turns in Easy Rider and Five Easy Pieces gave his name (and the film) stronger marquee power. Also keep an eye peeled for Harry Dean Stanton as another one of the Rebels. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
The Wild Ride
When an immoral hot-rodder, Johnny Varron (Jack Nicholson), is embittered by his friend Dave's (Robert Bean) betrayal of their wild and reckless life, he kidnaps Dave's girlfriend Nancy (Georgianne Carter) and takes her on a dangerous, high-speed romp while attempting to evade capture by the local cops. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi
It's a Revolution, Mother
Harry Kerwin, best known for such exploitation fare as Barracuda and God's Bloody Acre, directed this dull documentary focusing on the Aliens bike gang of New Jersey. There's some footage of a beach party where a man is unconvincingly beaten with chains, but most of the film is an uneventful look at the bikers' daily lives, consisting of tirades against "the Establishment," bike-polishing, and massive consumption of beer and marijuana. Kerwin also includes footage of the 1969 March on Washington and a Woodstock-like rock festival. Apparently he couldn't get the rights to actually show any of the bands, but there is a good deal of footage of hippies sitting around. As far as tedious hippie-era documentaries go, this would make a marvelous double bill with the 1968 Revolution, which at least contains some good music and a few laughs. By itself, this is strictly for dedicated nostalgia buffs only. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
