JOHNNY FIRECLOUD (1975)
If you took the movie BILLY JACK and got rid of all the hippie stuff and turn it into more of a straight ahead exploitation/drive-in movie type of a deal you would end up with this tale of an American Indian who returns from the army and gets treated like shit by all the rednecks in his hometown. Things eventually get crazier until Indians start ending up dead and then Johnny gets his savage revenge. You get rape, gore, racism and pretty much everything you could ask for rolled up in, as the tagline screams, "a hate story!" Definitely one of producer David Friedman's better made films and worth a look for fans of 70's rednecksploitation.
Actress Sacheen Littlefeather(who shows her breasts here but unfortunately it's during a gang-rape scene so not really all that sexy) is probably best know as the chick who showed up in place of Marlon Brando when he refused the academy award in '73.
