Ralph "Sonny" Barger aka Sonny Barger was the Oakland President of the Hell's Angels, and is seen briefly at the beginning of the movie for which the Hell's receive collective credit. Barger plays and is featured in Hell's Angels '69 (1969). See more »

The film was refused a UK cinema certificate in 1967 and only passed in 1977 after BBFC cuts to heavily edit the fight scenes. The 1988 video version featured a new opening montage of rape and violence scenes which were not in the original cinema print, and these scenes (totalling 11 minutes) were completely removed by the BBFC as well as shots of kidney punches during the hotel fight. The 2006 Cinema Club DVD restores the punches and was pre-edited by the distributors to remove the alternative opening scene. See more »
Although this film doesn't do much, it accomplishes everything that it set out to do. It successfully exploits just about everything in order to fulfill its duties. Sex, drugs, and violence are king here. The plot is like the women in this film: loose. There a lot going on but nothing much gets done to further a story. However, a romance is at its center. There are some scenes of bikers running amok set against hippy music that work well. The acting was very good from the entire cast, not just Nicholson (who, as always, was superb). I'm not going to give anything away, but the ending could have been better. It was a little cheesy. This is a pretty good biker exploitation flick although I would recommend Russ Meyer's Motorpsycho if you're in the mood for motorcycle chaos.
