The Wild One (Dual Format Edition)


Marlon Brando's breakthrough role, initially banned in the UK

- +

Marlon Brando in his breakthrough - and most iconic - role as Johnny Strabler, ruthless leader of the Black Rebels motorcycle gang who terrorise a small town. Based on real-life events, the film was considered so shocking and inciteful of delinquent behaviour at the time, it was banned in the UK until 1967.
