    Watched it while stationed in Germany in 1972 and recently on Netflix.
    Indeed Jack, Dennis and Peter were awesome!

    Look like a bunch of refugees from a go-rilla love-in.

    I think it is a pretty poor film.

    I like it and I'm 28. I'm not even a harley/chopper wannabe I ride an adventure touring bike.

    I just like the movie and have for a long time. It makes me want to cut loose and go out west. I like the older movies where they have to actually make what you see on the screen happen in front of the camera.

    Spoiler alert, why the hell does Peter Fonda always die in a fire ball? Every movie back then(Dirty Mary Crazy Larry, Race With The Devil, Easy Rider, etc) he dies in a fiery wreck.

    I think movies always have to be judged by when they were made. Tech abilities at the time, mood/morals at the time and such.

    That film was somewhat rebellious for it's time and gets credit for that.

    An iconic film, yes, a well made film, no....some real carpy films are still considered classics, i.e., The Living Dead, Catch 22, Dr. Strangelove, etc...not saying I don't like these films, I do, but some aren't really up to high-art standards, far from it...

    We ain't talkin' 'Citizen Kane', now, are we ? ?


    ( rose-bud..).....I'm out, :cool:

    I saw it when it was first released. It seemed cutting edge, very hip, at the time. Hopper and Fonda were superstars. That was the peak of Fonda's career. He just can't act.

    Then I watched it again years later when I was a college student. I was amazed at what a poorly made movie it is. I don't even think they used a script.

    They used the whole "man has no future/purpose" theme in "Crazy Larry/Dirty Mary", too. Fonda starred in that as well. He should have quit after Easy Rider.

    Dude, Strangelove is a great movie. The others you mention are dogs. But not Strangelove. Take it back.

    The Hired Hand is considered a classic. Have you seen it? He stole the movie in the remake of 3:10 to Yuma as well. Ulee's Gold got him nominated for an Academy Award I believe.



    I like him as he has....................."presence".
