Scorpio Rising

Scorpio Rising

Scorpio Rising is a 1963 American experimental short film directed by Kenneth Anger and starring Bruce Byron (who Anger asserts was "half-crazy") as Scorpio. Themes central to the film include the occult, biker subculture, homosexuality, Catholicism, and Nazism. The film also explores the worship of rebel icons of the era, such as James Dean and Marlon Brando (referred to by Anger as Byron's "heroes"). Like many of Anger's films, the film does not contain any dialogue; it instead features a prominent soundtrack consisting of 1960s pop, including songs by Ricky Nelson, The Angels, The Crystals, Bobby Vinton, Elvis Presley, and Ray Charles.
