Tom Laughlin Interviewed-2001
I will admit to the BILLY JACK films being a guilty pleasure of mine. Starting with BORN LOSERS in the sixties, then BILLY JACK itself--the one which star Tom Laughlin personally booked into theaters in Cincinnati and made it into a huge hit--then THE TRIAL OF BILLY JACK and finally BILLY JACK GOES TO WASHINGTON which had a week-long world premiere in Cincinnati. There was also the unfinished RETURN OF BILLY JACK from 1986 and others that weren't even started but were detailed on Tom's website. Here, from 2001, is part one of a fairly good interview with the controversial filmmaker.
