D.W. Griffith Is Off the Reservation
6 October 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

After Indian chief's brother Wilfred Lucas leaves to hunt game, Native American outsider Guy Hedlund seeks admission to the tribe, but is cast away. The rejected renegade vows vengeance for the "insult" and returns to kill Indian chief Frank Opperman. Obviously, Mr. Hedlund is one brave Indian. The tribe sends "smoke signals" out to inform brother Lucas, who returns to enact his own revenge. Director D.W. Griffith's "Biograph" regulars look stately in their Indian dress, swaying in the California mountain breeze. A year later, bit-playing Florence La Badie and bashful Blanche Sweet were big movie stars.

**** The Indian Brothers (7/17/11) D.W. Griffith ~ Wilfred Lucas, Guy Hedlund, Frank Opperman, Alfred Paget
