Biker Johnny (Brando) and his wild chums terrorise a small town until the Sheriff arrests rival gang leader Marvin (whose supremely sarcastic line 'Wah, they're arresting me' is one of the high points of the film). Minimally-plotted, seminal biker movie, which set the tone for the genre so well that many of its lines and situations now seem cliched.
