Indian Brothers, The (1911)

*** (out of 4)

Western from Griffith has a renegade Indian (Guy Hedlund) killing an Indian Chief (Frank Opperman) after being insulted but the Chief's brother (Wilfred Lucas) goes out for revenge. This isn't the best film Griffith did in the genre but it's still an entertaining little movie due in large part to the beautiful scenery of California back in 1911. The film goes by pretty fast and it seems to have Griffith saying that people should take care of their own problems. As is to be expected, all the Indians are being played by white people and I'm sure this will upset some but this was the common thing in 1911. Lucas is very good in the role of the brother but it's Hedlund who really steals the show with his maniac-like performance as the renegade. Griffith is able to build some nice suspense during the "hunt" scenes.
