  1. A darn popular song back in the day, and a good movie. Social injustice was big getting big back then and Billy Jack was possibly the first movie to produce a kung-fu type hero. He could really do all those kicks and take downs. Tough dude.

    • Diana, it’s an emotionally intense movie, so beware if you do get a chance. Billy Jack is a badass but if people weren’t being such jerks and worse he wouldn’t have to be.
