Video of the Week: “The Wild One”

This week’s video revisits The Wild One (1953), directed by Laslo Benedek and starring, who else, Marlon Brando. Timothy first appears at about 4:25, when he and the gang terrorize poor switchboard operator Dorothy (Eve March).

Tim related in the Psychotronic interview, “Someone took me over to see Laslo Benedek, who directed The Wild One, and he liked me, but he wouldn’t let me drive a motorcycle. I guess he didn’t trust me. He thought I’d run over a few people.”
