The 1968, British film “Girl on a Motorcycle” stared Marianne Faithfull, she was about 20 years old when the movie was shot and I now understand what Mick Jagger saw in her, especially after seeing Faithfull in full leathers riding a bike.  The film was released in the U.S. under the more appropriate title “Naked Under Leather”.  A quick summary; wild girl marries boring guy, girl goes on a motorcycle adventure for excitement, meets bad boy…

Hit the jump for the trailer and some footage from the movie.

    The film was directed by Jack Cardiff, one of the greats of cinematography. (He lit Red Shoes, Black Narcissus and many other Pressburger and Powell films.)

    Sadly he passed away a few weeks ago.
