Actor Tom Laughlin and his wife, Dolores Taylor, both started in Billy Jack, a movie that was conceived, written, directed, and produced by the couple. Laughlin attended the University of Wisconsin, then transferred to Marquette University, before transferring again to the University of South Dakota. It was there that he met Dolores Taylor, a graphic design student who would become his wife. It was also in South Dakota that Laughlin witnessed the mistreatment of Native Americans. It inspired him to write the screenplay for Billy Jack which they made into a movie in 1971. It was followed by The Trial of Billy Jack in 1974 and Billy Jack Goes to Washington in 1976.
