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.

Although the film is set in the 1830s, it shows characters firing revolvers, which hadn't been invented at the time. See more »
This was made between Billy Jack 2 and 3, but the character is pretty much the same
Tom Laughlin didn't have to stretch much for this role, to be sure, but as the previous poster said, Barbara Carrera alone is worth the price of admission. If you liked the Billy Jack flicks, you'll undoubtedly like this as well. If you like westerns, you'll like this too. It's a pretty solid performance, and Laughlin is surrounded by a good cast. This movie also has considerably higher production values than the first Billy Jack pictures. This is particularly noticeable in the cinematography, as well as the set design. One would suspect this is because by the time this was made, Laughlin was beginning to enjoy some degree of success and fame due to the buzz generated by the two previous Billy Jack installments.
