Girl On A Motorcycle
The Girl on a Motorcycle
“The Girl on a Motorcycle (French: La motocyclette), also known as Naked Under Leather, is a 1968 British-French film starring Alain Delon, Marianne Faithfull, Roger Mutton, Marius Goring, and Catherine Jourdan. It was listed to compete at the 1968 Cannes Film Festival, but the festival was cancelled due to the events of May 1968 in France. The Girl on a Motorcycle redefined the leather jacket for motorcyclists into a full body suit that Marianne Faithfull wore in the film.”
“Newly-married Rebecca leaves her husband’s Alsatian bed on her prized motorbike—symbol of freedom and escape—to visit her lover, Daniel, in Heidelberg. En route, she indulges in psychedelic and erotic reveries as she relives her changing relationship with the two men, before crashing into a truck at the film’s conclusion.
It is based on the novella La Motocyclette by André Pieyre de Mandiargues (The Motorcycle). In the medium to distant shots, the rider was the British GP champion Bill Ivy, wearing a blonde wig.”
