Storyline

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 Warren Anderson <wanderson@asdg.enet.dec.com>

Trivia

The beach shown in the opening immediately before the scene of Billy driving his jeep across the tall Bixby Creek Bridge is the beach below Bixby Creek Bridge. This beach is nearly inaccessible and has no commonly used name. BASE jumpers sometimes parachute from the bridge onto the beach, but are sometimes arrested for trespassing upon their return since the beach is private property. BASE jumpers leave the beach via either a little-known rocky route on the north side of the beach or via the canyon inland of the bridge. See more »

Goofs

The brake lever on the right handle bar of Vicky's Yamaha sticks up at an angle at the beginning of the movie, and 30 minutes into the movie, it disappears. Later, it reappears and disappears again several times. See more »

Campy, Outrageous Fun!
19 February 2003 | by HoohawnaynaySee all my reviews

This movie is interesting on many levels. Although it contains a few shocking scenes (if viewed unedited) it still comes across as kind of campy. When a girl on a motorcycle p***es off a motorcycle gang the fun begins. First of all, the girl on the cute little scooter type motorcyle looks like she just finished a gig on the "Hullabaloo" TV show complete with her matching go-go boots and bikini. She is kinda cute except she has a haircut that looks like they put a bowl on her head and cut around it. (She could have at least wore a "Bob's Big Boy Cascade" to sex it up a bit). She mouths off to the group of scumbags who all look like rejects from the Manson Family.

One shocking scene for 1967 is the part where two gang members french kiss (they are both men)! This is to illustrate the free-sex attitude of the era and supposedly (I am guessing here) to show what a bunch of degenerates these guys are.

Jane Russell is over the top here as a drunken, floozy mother of a teenage trollop who does a strip tease in her trailer park that has to be seen to be believed. The look on her face while stripping is somewhere between orgasmic and root canal. RENT THIS AND HAVE FUN!
