The wild angels: Heavenly Blues is the leader of a wild, roving band of leather-clad bikers. When his best friend, Loser, needs a new motorcycle, he tries to steal one from the police and is shot. Kidnapping their badly injured buddy from the hospital and causing pandemonium in the process, Blues and his friends believe they've set Loser free, but he dies not long after the escape. Staging a funeral and drunken orgy in a small town church, the gang flees is set upon by the enraged locals, leaving Blues alone to face the law.
The young racers: Racing champion William Campbell has it all-- money, fame and all the women he wants, even though he's married. But when Campbell seduces the fiancée of former champ Mark Damon, Damon decides to jump back into the driver's seat and show his arrogant successor what being a champion really means. As the best of the best burn rubber before a captivated world, their rivalry speeds them toward a fiery climax that has to be seen to be believed.

I'll watch pretty much anything associated with Roger Corman, the still living "King of the B's." This is a more straightforward effort by him, an low budget auto racing that prefigures much bigger movies like "Le Mans" and "Grand Prix." It was filmed on location in Europe and so has higher production values that many of his films, but the story drags and to call the acting wooden is an offense to trees everywhere. If actor Mark "Who?" Damon sounds familiar it's because he was dubbed by William Shatner. Francis Ford Coppola worked on this film and then went on to direct "Dementia 13" under Corman's auspices. Part of a two-fer disc with "The Wild Angels."
