The Wild One – Marlon Brando

 

He played Johnny – an arrogant, rebellious, tough yet sensitive leader of a roving motorcycle-biking gang (wearing a T-shirt and leather jacket) that invaded and terrorized a small-town in Laslo Benedek’s controversial (banned in Britain until a decade and a half later). The film was noted for one line of dialogue, typifying his attitude: “What are you rebelling against?” Brando’s reply: “Whadda ya got?” A nasty Lee Marvin led a rival gang of bikers named The Beetles.
