 At the height of the turbulent Sixties, Easy Rider exploded across American screens with its story of two bikers, played by Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda, on a drug run that propels them across the country. Along the way they meet up with a charismatic character played by Jack Nicholson in one of his first sensational roles. The film captivated a wide audience with its mixture of sex, drugs, rock and roll – and motorcycles, and Time magazine called it “one of the ten most important pictures of the decade.” Introduction by Dr. Steve Wagner
