    Yeah, the Billy Jack movies did not hold up well over time, but had a real cult following back in the day.

    By the way, that's our three in a row, all over the weekend:

    Peter O'Toole, 81 - Lawrence of Arabia, My Favorite Year.

    Joan Fontaine, 96 - Hitchcock's Suspicion (Academy Award Winner) and Rebecca. Sister of Olivia De Havilland (Gone With The Wind).

    And now Tom Laughlin.

    R.I.P., all...
    Thanks from boontito and Friday13

    Those Billy Jack shows were pretty popular when they came out. He played an anti establishment, anti war, part Indian combined with some of the first Karate scenes in movies. He produced, acted and paid for most of his movies out of his own pocket. Never heard from him since the 70's, kind of disappeared from making movies. I enjoyed his movies
