Get your motor runnin’ because our 77th edition revs up the hippy bike movie.

YouTube links: “Born To Be Wild” and Fonda breaks character and laughs at the fireside (at the 4:25 mark) and The Weight montage and Nicholson’s fireside scene and the acid trip in the graveyard and “Why don’t you get a hurr-cut” and Fonda’s speech about the `60s in The Limey
Next week on the T100P: Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid
