Easy Rider - Born to Be Wild - Biker Scene (ER-BS-001)
This legendary print is from the counterculture movie, Easy Rider courtesy of Globe Entertainment. "Easy Rider," directed by Dennis Hopper and released in 1969, is considered a landmark film in the history of American cinema, particularly for its impact on 1960s pop culture and the independent filmmaking scene. Easy Rider was also a major force in changing how movies used music in films via music supervision this collaboration pared the aural along with the visual. The movie soundtrack catapulted the band Steppenwolf in to the stratosphere with the single “Born To Be Wild”. To this day that song is still played everywhere and used in numerous other movies, not to mention how it made the biker culture explode way into the 70’s.
This print is from a publicity still shot that was used to help promote the movie and is widely regarded as “the shot” that sums up the 60’s counterculture. Globe Entertainment had the black and white negatives for this shot from their vast vintage movie archive, then had the print hand colorized to match the scene in the movie correctly. It is beyond stunning not to mention it’s historical and cultural importance!
