In 1974 I saw a movie at the Midland theater called Billy Jack, and later the sequel Trial Of Billy Jack. These movies were inspirational, and featured the song One Tin Soldier. Recently, I acquired a bead loom that was already threaded and a pattern started. I recognized the pattern as the bead work on Billy Jacks beaded black hat and hat band. I look forward to my upcoming bead trade event at the library, and perhaps finishing the hat band as a demo. These hat bands are quite pricey. People will pay up to $400 for a replica of Billy's hat band. I found a Billy Jack movie on YouTube....so I sang along with One Tin Soldier and was heartsick when I learned that the actor who played Billy, directed, and produced the movies died in 2013. RIP Tom Laughlin. You will be missed.
