Storyline

Hiawatha, a member of the Ojibway tribe, is on a peace mission to the Dakotah tribe. He meets and falls in love with Minniehaha. The romance is obstructed by a threatened war between the two tribes, instigated by a hot-headed Ojibway tribe member. The war is averted and Hiawatha learns that he is actually the long-missing son of the Dakotah chief. Hiawatha and Minniehaha set up tent-keeping together. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Well made, sincere performances

Trivia buffs might not help but notice and ask, was this a Monogram Picture, an Allied Artists movie like on some lists, or a Warner Brothers movie like the new box cover seems to say? At one stage or another, I guess it belonged to one of them. The musical score and scenic locations at Bass Lake really add a great deal to a rather wooden plot where Hiawatha attempts to prevent war with a nearby tribe that's being provoked by murders one of his own tribal leaders has committed. Vince Edwards (TV's Ben Casey) seems at his best romancing Minehaha while he tries to locate his lost father from the other tribe. Yvette Dugay is magnetic in her part, but Victor Mature and Debra Paget they're not. The absorbing atmosphere just takes me to a different place and time so much to forgive any dullness or holes in the plot.
