The Harley in Girl on a Motorcycle
Marianne Faithfull and her Harley Electra Glide in Girl on a Motorcycle
Marianne Faithfull lives fast and rides hard in the very 1968 British-French film Girl on a Motorcycle, in which she takes a Harley Davidson Electra Glide to meet her lover, Daniel (Alain Delon).
For many high-speed scenes, the production filmed Faithfull seated on the motorcycle, attached to a platform, as it was pulled by a vehicle down a closed road. The film’s mix of psychedelia and fatalism, plus the very bike-centric plot, make the Electra Glide a classic movie motorcycle.
