Wild Angels

Director: Roger Corman
Screenwriters: Charles Griffith

Institute History

  • 1985 Sundance Film Festival


Corman’s weird precursor of Easy Rider about a destructive California motorcycle gang was frequently banned from exhibition during its day. Cheaply made but directed and acted with vigor, Wild Angels features a trio of the young Peter Fonda, Nancy Sinatra, and Bruce Dern. That alone should be worth the price of admission. Peter Bogdanovich worked extensively on the script and editing, and can even be glimpsed in one of the gang rumbles.
