INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - HOW MANY motorcycle movies have been nominated for an Academy Award? While Ann-Margret and Joe Namath may have done some fine work in CC Rider, and Biker Chicks From Zombie Town is a "must see" around Halloween, critically acclaimed biker movies can be narrowed down to Easy Rider and On Any Sunday.
Cycle World magazine says the original On Any Sunday "is, without question, the finest motorcycle movie ever made." The late Steve McQueen said, "I think Bruce Brown's film is the best thing to ever happen to motorcycling. The audience is taken on a visual ride in what I believe is finally the definitive film on motorcycling." Some 30 years later, this statement still holds true, as the movie inspired an entire generation to go riding.
To commemorate the 30th Anniversary of On Any Sunday, Monterey Media asked Bruce Brown and his son, Dana, to go through their archives to put together On Any Sunday Revisited last year. "We literally had miles of extra footage," Bruce recounts. "We had way too many cameras rolling."
