The Wild Angels is one of Roger Corman‘s best, and it has a terrific soundtrack to boot.
Some might say – for biker film, how could you ignore Easy Rider?
For one, they are riding bikes, but they are not really Bikers.
For another, while Easy Rider has a classic soundtrack, the Wild Angels has a great original soundtrack by Davie Allan and the Arrows that is kind of hotrod-surfer on acid.
This is the prototype for Peter Fonda‘s character in Easy Rider, anyway, and though Easy Rider has Toni Basil, THIS has Nancy Sinatra. Awesome.
Check out the dialogue.
