The Girl on a Motorcycle

A rare Japanese B2 for the sixties cult classic The Girl on a Motorcycle, which followed Marianne Faithfull on a psychedelic motorcycle ride across Germany to see her lover. The American title of the film Naked Under Leather, together with the design of the US movie posters, which focused on a provocatively unzipped leather bodysuit, offered a teaser of the film's opening scene in which Faithfull zips the skin-tight bodysuit over her naked body before hitting the road. The Japanese poster artwork instead hints at the film's erotic scenes, which made it the first movie to be rated X in the US.
