..or...what's the big deal about "The Wild One" I watched "The Wild One" a couple of days ago on TCM and I can't get what the big deal is all about? This is Marlon Brando's finest acting appearance? He looked positively bored through the entire movie. There was hardly any emotion or charisma. They just put him in a leather outfit, stuck him on a motorcycle and gave him a few lines to read...... Also, when he was running away from the local townsfolk, he totally ran like a girl.
