An angry young Marlon Brando scorches the screen as The Wild One in this powerful '50s cult classic. Brando plays Johnny, the leader of a vicious biker gang that involves a small, sleepy California town. The leather-jacketed young biker seems hell-bent on destruction until he falls for Kathie (Mary Murphy), a "good-girl" whose father happens to be a cop. Unfortunately for Johnny, his one shot at redemption is threatened by a psychotic rival, Chino (Lee Marvin) plus the hostility and prejudice of the townspeople. All their smouldering passions explode in an electrifying climax.
