Motorcycle Madness

When the boys have a need for speed, they grab a girl and jump on their motorcycles, chasing the wind and chancing the rough roads. Dusty Weston and Chris Rhodes are two orphans who grew up together and are closer than real brothers could be. Nothing could come between them . . . well . . . maybe one thing . . . or should I say one girl . . . named Eve. Dusty, played by Bill Williams, is a hot-shot motorcycle racer for a bike company whose ego has as much horsepower as his bike, and his best friend Chris, played by Michael St. Angel, is the genius mechanic who will try to create a new who-zy what-zit for a faster bike . . . who-zy what-zit? . . . yeah, there was a technical thing that mechanics will probably recognize, but gimme a break . . . I'm a computer mouse jockey who barely knows how to pump my own gas! So anyway, pretty brunette reporter Eve Drake, played by Carla Balenda, gets involved with the bikers and a love triangle develops quickly . . . Eve hates-then-loves big-ego Dusty, and mechanic Chris falls hard for Eve, and Dusty? . . . He loves Ruby, and Opal, and Sapphire, and all the other groupie girls with names like jewels that cling to the big man, but Dusty finally falls for Eve just like his buddy Chris does. All will be settled in the big race . . . Chris rides the cycle with his new who-zy what-zit thingy and Dusty rides another bike and all bets are off as these two ferocious bikers fight for the win. Now, before you pop your bowl of white kernel popcorn with warm melted butter drizzled over it I'd like to introduce you to the fellow in this story called Blackie. There were two brothers a couple of years apart whose father died shortly after the younger brother was born. Growing up in New York City's Hell's Kitchen taught them both to fight and survive in a tough world. The Great Depression convinced them to put their belongings into their pockets and head for California, walking and riding trains with the other hobos. One brother became a legendary Hollywood actor, and the other brother, who plays Blackie in this story, you probably never heard of. He sailed the high seas, led a choir, and then also turned to acting, usually playing the bad guy you never remember in movies with Humphry Bogart, John Wayne, and he even appeared with Clint Eastwood in three "Dirty Harry" movies as his cop partner . . . the legendary actor was older brother Robert Mitchum, and the fellow who played motorcycle rider Blackie in this story is younger brother John Mitchum. Watch for his 5 seconds of close-up when he challenges and fights with Dusty in the little restaurant scene . . . now go pop that corn and grab your beverage of choice and get ready for some down and dirty bike racing and girl chasing fun.
