Watch Hells Angels on Wheels
- 1 hr 30 min
The very young Jack Nicholson plays Poet, a bored gas station attendant looking for adventure. Adam Roarke is Buddy, the leader of a Hells Angels chapter roaring through town. Buddy asks Poet to join the gang after Poet becomes involved in a robbery the bikers pull off. The love interest is beautiful Sabrina Scharf as Shill, who becomes torn between Poet and Buddy. This movie is a lot more than just another biker movie. Hells Angels on Wheels attracted a cult following in part because of cinematographer Laszlo Kovaks's gorgeous and gritty photography. Jack Nicholson gives an outstanding performance as a man both drawn to and repelled by the independence and depravity of the Hells Angels. The Harleys are untamed freedom, raw and seductive. Sonny Barger, one of the original founders of the Hells Angels, appears in this movie as himself.
