I LOVE 1969

Easy Rider

Easy Rider

The ultimate road movie.

Co-stars Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper play two 'anti heroes' travelling across the South West US. The movie inspired thousands to take off into the sunset.

Not afraid to show drug deals and the seedier side of life, it won Dennis Hopper 'Best New Director' at Cannes.

Easy Rider was a shock to the system for traditional movie-goers.
