Director Jack Cardiff also served as scripter and cinematographer of the Anglo-French co-production Girl on a Motorcycle (La Motocyclette) The girl in question is played by leather-clad Marianne Faithfull, who speeds through Alsace on her cycle, en route to a tryst in Heidelberg with her ex-lover (Alain Delon). In a series of flashbacks, she recalls the events leading up to the present critical moment, including her desultory marriage. Based on a novel by Andre de Pieyre, the R-rated Girl on a Motorcycle was originally released in English-speaking countries in an X-rated version titled Naked Under Leather. Based on the stage play by Walter Melville. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Sort of a female "Easy Rider"... by Phasmatrope October 9, 2009 - 12:21 AM PDT

So I'd been trying to see this, waiting for a copy (after it'd been OOP for some time) for a few years now... being a fan of cult film in general, I think it was first brought to my attention when a friend mentioned that it was regularly screened as silent visual background atmosphere at one of the L.A. night spots he worked at (I believe the downtown Standard). Anyway signed up here in June, and it finally became available just the other day (to give you an idea). And while I can't say that it was entirely worth the wait, it was still an interesting time capsule to 60's filmmaking... colorful psychedelic editing, a sometimes unintentionally funny performance by Faithful (talking to herself out loud and whipping her head around wildly), and a healthy dose of scenic European countryside and leather-clad sexual appeal. Quaint, not altogether memorable, but worth a look if you can find a copy.

Moto Movies!!
Motorcycles in the movies! Some of these films are all about bikes, some only have a scene or two, but are still cool.
