Mimsy Farmer is harrassed by bikers in Devil’s Angels.

 

Devil’s Angels, like virtually all biker films since The Wild One (1953), is based on an incident in Hollister, California in 1947. A group of motorcyclists allegedly upset the town, providing grist for Life magazine, thus incarnating a new version of the Enemy Within for a paranoid Cold War America obsessed with the Other—“juvenile delinquents” were next on the list of perceived internal subversives.
