Bad asses come in contrasting types and styles. The conflict and resolution of Chrome and Hot Leather (1971) pit the clean-cut and patriotic lethality inherent to a trio of seasoned Green Berets against the antiauthoritarian menace exuded by a band of rough-riding outlaw motorcyclists. As can be expected, opposing tidal waves of testosterone come speeding toward one another. Don’t be surprised, but inappropriate attentions to an honorable man’s good woman have set the culture crash in motion. Amid the violence, the moralizing, and the swollen macho posturing, pop singers Bobby Pickett and Marvin Gaye show up and provide dramatic relief.
