A malicious motorcycle gang harasses the residents of a small California town, intimidating most residents to not report them to the police. Among the gang's crimes is the rape of four young women. As the gang attempts to threaten the women into not testifying at the indictment hearing, one of the women, Vicki, comes under the protection of Billy Jack, who has also had several altercations with the gang. The gang escalates their pressure on both Vicki and Billy Jack to keep her out of the courtroom. Written by

Banned in Sweden for its violence in 1968, 1972 and 1975. See more »
At the beginning of the scene at the Shorns' house, the LP record Jodell is looking at while talking to her mother changes from David Rose's 'The Stripper' into 'Music to Strip By' and then back again. These were both actual stripper-themed LPs released in the 1960s (perhaps suggesting Mrs. Shorn's previous occupation?) See more »
Only worth watching if you get a kick out of bad films
I caught this film the other (late) night on cable. As a youth I really enjoyed the karate action Billy Jack movies but I had never seen this one. The reason I had never seen it is that is was so bad, it didn't deserve the airtime back in the 70's. It's just a bad film all the way around. The editing is just horrible, Tom Laughlin is OK as Billy Jack but everyone else is horrible. It is almost a comedy it is so bad. Reminds me a bit of the Beach Blanket Bingo movies with the stereotyped, one dimensional biker characters. Jane Russel has a small part and even though she is way over-the top, it was enjoyable to watch her. Some of the dialogue seems written by a 10 year old - especially the scenes between the law enforcement officials. On top of that, I was disappointed in the action scenes. Very little Billy Jake fight scenes compared with the later Billy Jake movies.
