An Early Example of a Bison Western Utilizing Big Bear Locations
15 October 2011 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Even before Thomas Ince's arrival and the production of more elaborate westerns at New York Motion Picture Corp., some memorable films had been made, as I outline in my biography of Ince. Big Bear Lake provides a distinctive location for Little Dove's Romance (Bison). Several white men are on a hunting trip, and one of them notices an Indian girl fall from her horse. He takes the injured girl back to his camp, where the Indians find later find her, and a potential confrontation is averted when Little Dove explains how she has been cared for. Gifts are brought in thanks, and Little Dove keeps a photograph of her rescuer, even though she has an Indian fiancée. After the hunters depart, one of them, an Indian renegade, returns and abducts Little Dove. Her fiancée pursues, and after a fight Little Dove is rescued. Back with her own people, however, Little Dove longs for her white rescuer. She rows back to their camp, weeping over the photograph. Her fiancée follows her, tears up the picture, and the couple reconcile. The love triangle is convincing and affecting, with the various ways in which the white and Indian meet and mingle delineated in a convincing manner. In Little Dove's Romance, the two groups respect and willingly care for one another, whether the white who rescues Little Dove, or her feeling more than gratitude to him. It is only the renegade who violates the code. At the same time, there is respect for tradition with Little Dove staying with her people and Indian fiancée. Adding to the emotional impact of the story to the audience is the lake locale, providing a true sense of the frontier and one different from most western backgrounds.
