Billy Jack (1971)
|A half-indian/half-white ex-green beret billy jack is drawn more and more toward his indian side. He hates violence but can't get away from it in the white man's world.|
Editor's NoteA box-office success with an attractive plot for modern-day youth. Laughlin stars as a half-breed (half Indian, half white) war hero who fights bigotry and injustice with Karate-trained effectiveness.

Anyone who watched this movie in the 70's was effected by it for a lifetime. I love movies, but none has ever stuck with me like Billy Jack. I think most humans have a sense of justice inside of them that is stimulated by the beauty and impact of Tom Laughlin's masterpiece. When showing B.J. in Civics classes, it still amazes me how even this generation of kids cheer the same as I did almost 30 years ago. I hear of speculation about another Billy Jack movie.
