Ya gotta love that one-fisted salute all those people give the Billie Jack when he finally got hauled off to be tortured. One-percenters popularized it first, then the black panthers appropriated it, followed by Billy Jack and his white/native ilk in the moo-vies.
The rideup on the horse and the twirling of the Winchester a la The Duke is particularly amusing, since it looks like he almost dropped the rifle. The face-kicking goes over pretty good though.
Long live Billie Jack!
I agrree with the hat part.
How can you not like a movie where the villain says, just before raping Billy Jack's girlfriend, "Part of me doesn't want to do this." That line ranks right up there with "Love means never having to say you're sorry." As one of the stupidest lines ever uttered in the history of Cinema.
Billy Jack endures. I hate that movie just as much today as when it came out 40 years ago. When the acquaintance who recommended it asked me how I liked it, I told him, "I'm gonna take this right foot, and I'm gonna whop you on that side of your face... and you wanna know something? There's not a damn thing you're gonna be able to do about it." Sure, I had to push the guy down first in order to kick him in the face, but hey, it was totally worth it.
but I'm never going to say I'm sorry that you didn't love Billie Jack and his girlfriend. What's not to love about the ugliest girlfriend in the world?
Sure Gandhi had more self-control but I'm sure in his heart of hearts he sometimes wanted to give those Brits a roundhouse kick to the head like Billy Jack. As a man of peace, Billy Jack had to struggle with the erge to open up a can of whoopass now and then.
He didn't judge his girlfriend from her outward appearance. Be us red,white, black or yellow we're all the same on the inside > blood,guts, mucus, bile and a bunch other stuff too nasty to look at. See Billy Jack is all about peace, equality, justice and oh yessssssssssss roundhouse kicks to the head.
"Bernard, I want you to know... that I try. When Jean and the kids at the school tell me that I'm supposed to control my violent temper, and be passive and nonviolent like they are, I try. I really try. Though when I see this girl... of such a beautiful spirit... so degraded... and this boy... that I love... sprawled out by this big ape here... and this little girl, who is so special to us we call her 'God's little gift of sunshine'... and I think of the number of years that she's going to have to carry in her memory... the savagery of this idiotic moment of yours... I just go BERSERK!"
Ahhhhh, sweet sweet violence...

I tried to find a video of Paul Simon as Billy Jack doing that exact scene on SNL but no dice
Old, so old...
...someone put me out of my misery...
BTW, why couldn't the Valley People just accept a share of the treasure? Because the plot requires them to be selfish psychopaths.
