The Wild One (1953)

In director Laslo Benedek's sub-genre-defining motorcycle gang film:

  • the scene of the bikers dragging on the street for beers
  • the memorable scene in which Johnny responds to the question: "What are you rebelling against?" with "What've you got?"
  • the scene of a group of rival cyclists circling sheriff's daughter Kathie (Mary Murphy) and terrorizing her
  • Kathie's rescue and moonlit motorcycle ride on the back of Johnny's motorcycle and their scene in the park
