One Tin Soldier Rides Away
Mike at Spring City Chronicle suggests that the worst movie of all time was The Trial of Billy Jack. Could be. I seem to remember that the kids at the Freedom School developed some device to tell them when (always conservative)politicians were lying. For me, that has been one of the touchstones of boomer arrogance.
Tom Laughlin, who played Billy Jack, was from Milwaukee and went to Washington High. He asked my Mom out but she said "no" because he had a reputation. Gee, I could have grown up in Hollywood.
