FILM MAKERS

Delinquent Boss (1968) is the primary in what would turn into Toei’s most profitable, longest-running bosozoku movie sequence. The Delinquent Boss sequence (also referred to as the Wolves of the Metropolis sequence) lasted from 1968 until 1974 via seventeen movies. The sequence starred Tatsuo Umemiya because the chief of a motorbike youth gang referred to as the Capones. Filled with shock-value & “pinku” soft-core intercourse, nudity, violence, gunplay, & a number of primarily pointless foolishness. Co-opting racist nazi imagery, and inventing a non-existent youth tradition void of morality. The motorbike gang takes on police, gangsters, & most people, with frequent excuses all through the sequence for girls to take not less than a few of their clothes off & even to wield swords partially bare.

*Bōsōzoku interprets actually to “operating uncontrolled tribes”
