Corman gives the Hell’s Angels a bad name.

Heavenly Blue (Peter Fonda) and his raucous gang of outlaw bikers (including Bruce Dern) hit the road in search of a stolen motorcycle and ride straight into a world of trouble. With a black leather-clad Fonda roaring across the screen to a groovy hard rock score, Corman not only steered the film into competition at the 1966 Venice Film Festival, but established his crucial connection with the counter-culture audience of the time.
