Sample text

Background: Billy Jack has a fascinating production history. The concept began life as a low-budget film that was only one step up from a home movie called The Born Losers (1967). The central character was a returning vet who comes home to find bikers and Hells Angels marauding through his town. Needless to say, the vet shows them the error of their ways. Laughlin was sufficiently aware of its dubious technical quality to use a pseudonym for his director/producer credit (though vain enough to star under his own name) but by some quirk of cinematic history, The Born Losers proved to be successful in very, very modest terms but enough to convince Laughlin that he was onto something.

Writer: Ronald Bass, based on the novel by Nicholas Proffitt. Cinematographer: Jordan Cronenweth. Editor: Barry Malkin. Cast: James Caan (Sergeant Hazard), Anjelica Huston (Samantha), James Earl Jones (Sergeant Goody Nelson), DB Sweeney (Jackie Willow). Summary: At Arlington military cemetery, Sergeants Hazard and Nelson are part of the Honor Guard responsible for burying the dead. Both are veterans of Korea who believe that they could teach the recruits at Fort Benning how to survive in Vietnam, but their superior officer won’t give them a transfer.

These subtle hints—added to Travis’ weapons training, insomnia and psychosis—have a cumulative effect. Travis is the ultimate Vietnam vet, completely psychotic, completely dispossessed. As Betsy says, he’s a “walking contradiction,” a peep show voyeur who wants to wash all the scum off the street; the spectre of Vietnam come back to haunt New York’s night streets; a living reproach of the city’s immorality and political bankruptcy (Senator Pallantine’s speech includes the line “we the people who suffered in Vietnam,” but somehow you guess he probably spent the war in Canada along with Bill Clinton).
