Okay… You KNEW this was coming… Clips from the films, and in 1080p24 HD!!
The first clip: The classic ‘I Just Go BERSERK!!’ scene from ‘Billy Jack’.
What most people don’t know is this scene more than anything else in the film is THE REASON Billy Jack came to be. It recreates an event Tom actually lived through back in Winner, South Dakota, in 1953. Tom was visiting Delores and her family on winter break from Vermillion college and while sitting at the Pheasant Bar, some of the locals told with great glee how they had poured the local Indians monthly flour allotment over their heads to make them white. Tom was seething. He wanted to beat these imbeciles to a pulp. But he was on his best behavior, trying to make a good impression on Delores’ family and friends. But the ‘savagery’ and ‘idiocy’ of this event stuck with him for over 15 years as he and Delores struggled to get ‘Billy Jack’ made. He was determined to throw this kind of cruel stupidity through a plate glass window, which he finally did at the end of this famous scene.
Just one of the incredible stories behind inspiration for and making of ‘Billy Jack’ we’ll be detailing in the Billy Jack documentary.
