If you see this film today, it probably will make you wonder if everyone associated with the film was crazy. Well, I would say that they were crazy brilliant, as in the late 60s and early 70s, cheap, crappy and practically plot less biker films made a fortune. After all, the films were mostly filled with a lot of non-actors--mostly hippies and biker types the studios found driving the highways out west. Add to that no real need to pay for interesting scripts (apart from "Easy Rider" which really is NOT a biker film...or at least a biker gang film)...and you have a recipe for success. That is why films like "Satan's Sadists", "Werewolves on Wheels" and "C.C. and Company were made...because these ridiculous films made money.
When the film begins, you are introduced to C.C. (Joe Namath). He steals food and bikes but he's the 'nice' biker gang member...which you soon see when a couple of his fellow club members try to rape a woman (Ann-Margret). But C.C. is a nice...and stops them. From then on, things are sour between him and the head of the gang (William Smith--who also produced and wrote the film). Even when C.C. wins some bike races and should become a hero, the gang treats him badly and in the dead of night he splits. Is this the end of the gang and C.C.? What do you think?
The actual plot of this film really only becomes evident late in the film (about the last 20 minutes) and other than that it's mostly women taking off their clothes and bikers riding about and Namath wooing Ann-Margret. Not a horrible movie (at least you get to see her naked) and the music is simply amazing! But it's also a silly and inconsequential little curio that will make folks say "who's that Joe Namath guy?".
