Bill Osgerby explores the history, context, nature and significance of the 'biker' movie phenomenon. From the genre's origins in the 'teenpic' industry of the early 1950s, he traces the 'biker' movie through its belligerent double decade heyday to its decline and subsequent re-birth during the 1980s, '90s and first decade of the 21st century.
