Actor Tom Laughlin who produced and stared in the movie Billie Jack has died at 82 from pneumonia.  Laughlin played football and studied drama and acting at USD before the 1971 release of the self-financed movie.  Inspiration for Billie Jack came from observing the treatment of Native Americans in his wife’s hometown of Winner, SD.  Laughlin ran for President of the United States three times in California.
