The Wild One with Marlon Brando was the first biker movie and what first brought the biker gangs like California’s Hell’s Angels to American folklore. The Wild One was based on a biker “riot” that took place in the small town of Hollister California on July 4, 1948. . . Your Editor Dennis Crenshaw
As Wikipedia explains:
Many more motorcyclists than expected flooded the small town to watch the annual rallies as well as to socialize and drink. A few of the motorcyclists got out of control and caused a commotion in the town, although at the end of the event, the damage was considered minor.
The incident, known afterwards as the Hollister riot, was sensationalized by the press with reports of bikers “taking over the town” and “pandemonium” in Hollister. The strongest dramatization of the event was a staged photo of a drunken man sitting on a motorcycle surrounded by beer bottles. It was published in Life magazine and it brought national attention and negative opinion to the event. The Hollister riot helped to give rise to the outlaw biker image. . . . Read Complete Report
