Black Six, The (1973)

Vietnam vet Bubba Daniels (Gene Washington) returns home to find his brother Eddie (Robert Howard) has been killed by a white supremacist biker gang led by Thor (Ben Davidson) for dating a white girl (Thor’s sister, in fact).

Bubba and five of his Vietnam vet buddies – aka the Black Six – decide to avenge that death, which leads to battles with townies, racist cops and Thor’s gang.

In the end, as flames rise from a ring of burning bikes, it’s hard to tell who was or wasn’t wiped out. But a final caption – “Hassle a brother and the Black Six will return”- hints at a sequel which never came.

A number of NFL players featured in prominent supporting roles.
