The Loveless is a 1982 film about a group of leather-clad bikers led by a fierce leader named Vance (William Dafoe). From the beginning, the movie portrays Vance as a rough-rider, but also as having a kinder side as he assists a lone woman with a flat tire. The decency is short-lived, as he steals the woman's purse and goes through her wallet taking some money. The bikers are en route to a race in Daytona, Florida, but one of their bikes break down during the trip forcing them to stop in a small Georgia town. While waiting for the motorcycle repairs, the group of bikers decides to raise hell on the townsfolk. The town fights back and stands up to the bullies. A romance between Vance and a young woman named Debbie (Tina L'Hotsky) develops throughout the movie. Monty Montgomery and Kathryn Bigelow direct this over-the-top drama that parallels Marlon Brando's classic biker movie, The Wild One.
