Billy Jack Goes to Washington

Release: January 01, 1977

1977 film starring Tom Laughlin. It is the fourth and last film in the Billy Jack series. The film only saw limited screenings upon its release and never saw a general theatrical release, but has since become widely available on DVD. The plot largely follows the plot of the Frank Capra film Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. Billy Jack is appointed a United States Senator to fill out the remaining term of another Senator. It is hoped that he will quietly vote the party line, but his term in the Senate runs into trouble when he proposes a bill to fund a national youth camp which happens to be on the property where a nuclear power plant is also being proposed. His fellow Senator Joseph Paine (played by E. G. Marshall) claims to oppose nuclear power but is secretly taking graft to influence his votes in favor, and moves to try and keep Billy Jack out of the way when the bill is being debated.
