Triumph Motorcyles, Schott Leather Jackets & overt masculinity are on full display in THE WILD ONE (1953). Marlon Brando's portrayal of Johnny Strabler has since become one of the leading examples of the rebellious uprising of many youths during the 1950's.
Martin Ritt's spectacular anti-western follows Paul Newman's boozing, womanizing iconoclast Hud Bannon & the destructive effect he has on everyone around him. Features excellent supporting performances and superb expansive B&W photography by James Wong Howe.
