The Great Escape may not be a motorcycle movie, strictly speaking, but it contains what is arguably the most famous motorcycle scene in history. Steve McQueen solidified his place as an top Hollywood actor after appearing in The Great Escape as well as his place as the king of cool with his famous motorcycle chase for freedom.
Easy Rider is the classic road film. In fact, it's come to almost define what the road film is all about: two friends sick of the establishment head out on the open road in search of freedom. But whereas so many other road films have used cars, Easy Rider is a movie about motorcycles as well.
Every once in a while Hollywood puts out a big budget movie with an A-list actor that is centered around the world of motorcycling. It doesn't happen often, but in 2005, Anthony Hopkins brought the story of Burt Munro to the big screen with The World's Fastest Indian.
