An American archetype was born with Marlon Brando and mainstream bike film The Wild One. The Black Rebels Motorcycle Club led by Johnny Strabler manifested and introduced major American classics to the populous: long sideburns followed by James Dean and Elvis Presley, Perferto-style motorcycle jackets and Triumph motorcycles which even created a range of clothing and promotional items inspired by Brando's image from The Wild One. Even though there are several other fantastic biker films that also came out before and around the same time as this film, The Wild One captivated the nation to embrace the rebel.
