      Return of the Rebels is a made-for-TV movie that I loved to watch back in the day. It was one of those fun films that was showed repeatedly during a pre-cable era. It stars Barbara Eden and Don Murray, and something about it just appealed to me from the beginning.

      Basically, Eden and Murray used to belong to the same motorcycle group. Years have passed, and Eden’s character


      is in trouble. She needs some help to save her business. Having nowhere else to turn, she contacts Murray. Sparks fly, of course.

      There’s a great cast here of former cyclers, all of whom have moved on to a variety of careers and success. For some of them, it’s a journey of rediscovery as they try and help their old friend. There’s not a lot of ...


      • focus on the inner workings here, but there’s enough to give a sense of finding themselves again.

        The supporting cast includes Jamie Farr, Christopher Connelly, and Robert Mandan. However, the real attention getter is a young Patrick Swayze, who smirks menacingly at Eden throughout the movie. In fact, when I watch these scenes today, I can’t help but imagine just how NC-17 this movie would probably become. Swayze

        gives one great, evil smile. It’s really chilling sometimes,the way he looks leeringly at the object of his desires.

        Return of the Rebels is a good movie. I still enjoy watching it, especially now that Swayze is a star. Oddly, I didn’t recall that he was the threatening thug in this movie until long after watching some of his movies years later. It was a fun surprise.
