This is a true story. It is more emotional than a soap opera and, yet, unflinchingly genuine.
Just as was depicted in this film, Ishii stumbled into a white man's barn near Oroville, California, in 1911. He later told Kroeber that he expected nothing but death. Graham Greene's portrayal of a soft-spoken primitive gentleman is delightful. Greene's Ishii speaks English only after a fashion.
If you have the time, look up Kroeber's story of Ishii in the "Handbook of California Indians".
