R | | Adventure, Drama
Through the open country and desert lands, two bikers head from L.A to New Orleans, and along the way, meet a man who bridges a counter-culture gap they are unaware of.
The bridge, seen in the opening credits, the Old Trails Arch Bridge in Topock, Arizona, is the same bridge Peter Fonda's father, Henry, playing Tom Joad, crossed with the Joad family when entering California in The Grapes of Wrath (1940).
Do you ever talk to bullfrogs in the middle of the night?
Billy: Not generally.
George Hanson: You don't?
Billy: No, I don't.
George Hanson: You know what I used to do?
Billy: What did you used to do?
George Hanson: Well, I'll tell you one thing I didn't used to do is talk to bullfrogs in the middle of the night. ...
When Billy and Wyatt are with George outside the police station, as Billy hands over the bottle of liquor and drinks it, the boom mic is reflected in his sun glasses.
