Ghost Gate Road

Vince becomes a full-blown Bodgie – a name for the anti-authoritarian youth cult inspired by Hollywood movies like The Wild One with Marlon Brando – in his late teens, and his violence escalates. By the early 1960s he is dealing in marijuana, running prostitutes out of a Warwick hotel, and has become a dangerous sexual predator. He finally pushes the envelope too far and earns a lengthy stint in prison. On his release, his attempt to stay on the straight and narrow doesn’t last long, and he’s back in jail. After this stretch, he soon becomes the most feared gangster in the Australian underworld.
