Redman's View, The (1909)

*** (out of 4)

D.W. Griffith short about a tribe of Indians being ran off their land by evil white men. As the Indians go to walk across the desert, their Chief suddenly becomes ill. Here's another anti-racism short from Griffith and as usual he goes a tad bit overboard and the sentimental ending but overall the film works. The wonderful locations are a big plus.

You can find this short through Image, Grapevine and Kino on their Griffith sets.
