THE WILD ONE
(1953) dir Laslo Benedek w/Marlon Brando, Mary Murphy, Robert Keith, Lee Marvin [79 min; 35mm]
"Hey Johnny, what are you rebelling against?"
"Whadda you got?"
A stunning early film from Marlon Brando that immediately shows his remarkable screen presence. Brando stars as Johnny Strabler, the leader of a motorcycle gang that more or less takes over a small desert town until a rival gang shows up and tensions reach a boiling point.
