Trivia

The film begins with the words "Billy Jack Rights Presents" appearing on the screen. This relates to Tom Laughlin and Delores Taylor's production company, Billy Jack Enterprises. After the prologue narration, it is followed two minutes later by "Billy Jack Enterprises Presents", which starts the opening credits. Neither means this film is in the "Billy Jack" series of movies.

Sukiyaki Western with Billy Jack
7 March 2013 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Educated in the Orient, peaceful pistol-packing Tom Laughlin (as Finley) is also a samurai swordsman. He shoots and slashes people who want to take land away from Native Americans and Mexicans. They've just stolen California from them. A US government shipment of two million dollars in gold is involved. "One Week Later," birds peck at what could be a carcass. Many shots of "The Birds" amount to what could be homage to director Alfred Hitchcock. An entire family is missing. Twitching the flesh around his left eye expertly, best friend or enemy Ron O'Neal (as Paulo) and others are led to believe Mr. Laughlin stole the gold. He's clearly full of himself. Helping pass many dull stretches is beautiful Barbara Carrera (as Eula).
