‘The Master Gunfighter’

Many people think of Tom Laughlin as Billy Jack. While that is certainly the character he will forever be remembered as, he played many roles before ‘Billy Jack’, and played one after: Finley in ‘The Master Gunfighter’.

Tom Laughlin was a big fan of samurai films, and became especially excited by ‘Goyokin’, so excited he decided to remake the film in english. That remake was ‘The Master Gunfighter’, a hybrid western that mixed samurai swords and six guns.

  5. I remember this well, deserted village, my village, flesh hanging from nets, crows flying, the crash of waves in slow motion back splash against the horozon at Big Sur… the horror inside that waited for me… what a homecoming for a new bride to be*
