The misadventures of two bum motorcycle racers.
Halsy Knox (Robert Redford) and Little Fauss (Michael J. Pollard) collide during a race and Little breaks his leg. The unlikely pair team up and head for California to race. Halsy's using Little's race card, since his has been revoked and Little can't race with a broken leg. They meet a Naked Girl (Lauren Hutton) escaping from a biker gang and adopt her. She is the reason the team breaks up.

 

MY RATING.........."PRETTY GOOD"


COMMENT:

Super performances by everyone in this film. I always liked it. In fact Redford won the N.Y.F.C.C. "best actor" award for this film in 1970.
