Brave Eagle - never before or since !!!
25 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although I was just seven years old when Brave Eagle premiered on TV I have never forgotten him. Keith Larsen presented an image of a proud young Cheyenne chief who was honorable, compassionate, intelligent, strong of character, strong of body, poignant, and incredibly handsome. I was completely mesmerized by Brave Eagle and credit his television character for my lifelong respect and compassion for the Native American people. "Brave Eagle" also because a euphemism in my personal life referring to the "man of my dreams" because he had all of the best qualities in a man. Five decades later and just two weeks ago (and before I stumbled across this website tonight) I told a friend that there just weren't any "Brave Eagle's" anymore........then I had to explain who he was. It is sad that this adventuresome and wholesome series aired before nationwide broadcasting existed because it was truly a program for the whole family. Brave Eagle's character per se was truly one of a kind and has never been equaled on screen since.
