Easy Rider wasn't so much political as it was a social commentary of the time. Counter culture vs redneck culture...not a good combination back in the mid to late 60's.

Fonda's daughter Bridget was in the film if I recall...

I don't envy them riding those hardtail panheads at all...

Right on the commentary button! PBS will have to expand its Friday night news summary to include "Shields, Brooks, and Roper." Seriously!

I remember cruising in my old Volkswagen to the soundtrack of Easy Rider back in '69 and '70.

No cds or mp3s back then; 8-tracks were the bomb!

As in talking about Easy Rider. It's on TV Wednesday in my area. It's on a channel called the movie channel. I know there are several different channels called that but in my area it is on Channel 116

Dennis Hopper was great in that film as well as Jack, Peter Fonda couldn't act his way out of a wet paper bag. Karen Black was in it also. I remember the poster of Dennis H. on his Harley flippin the dudes in the truck off, a classic, I bought that poster for my sister when she moved out of the house.

But Peter & Nancy were epic.
"Are you ready boots?"
I think you're getting the Fondas and the Sinatras mixed up, David. Peter Fonda starred in Easy Rider.
Nancy Sinatra sang "These boots are made for walking'".

Or I'm mistaken and you were simply talkin' to our WFF member "wadin' boot"? :)

You are right, but the pic was from Wild Angels. An also ran moody righteous bike flick with both. I just segued.
Call me sick but I still see her prancing boots. Frank no doubt spent a bundle promoting his baby girl.

At the time, it cost the least to film and made the most for the price tag. It certainly launched Jack's career.

I liked it. It fit the times. Probably, it wouldn't mean much to other than the Baby Boomers.

I remember reading about the diner scene. The diner patrons were everyday locals. The camera guy told them to do their everyday thing then had Hopper and Fonda walk in. The tense stare-down was pretty real for the day.
