The film follows Johnny Strabler a cop-hating, leader of The Black Rebels; a motorcycle gang. The gang invade a small town, rebelling against anything and everything is their moto. While in the town he meets and falls for a good girl Kathie who’s father happens to be a cop. Will love change his life or will he continue with his rebellious ways. You’ll have to watch the film to find out.

The film is loosely based on an incident that occurred over the Fourth of July weekend in 1947 in Hollister, California. Brando shines in this rebellious role. The blu-ray transfer is beautiful. There is no bonus features, but is is still worth it for Brando fans.
