Phil Leeds and Richard Stahl
29 May 2014 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"The Indian" features Charles White Eagle as George Tenfingers, an elderly Indian whose only desire is to die in the park. Even an agent (Richard Stahl, second of three) from the Bureau of Indian Affairs cannot assist in this manner, so it's up to Wojo to ensure that there will be peace for the old man. Maggie DuBois (Alix Elias, second of two) walks in complaining that her shows were stolen off her feet by a divorced little man (Phil Leeds, four of seven) with an obvious foot fetish, caught with a bag full of footwear (his ex-wife had the feet of a brontosaurus). Dino Natali makes the second of his five appearances as Officer Zatelli, whose paperwork earns high praise from Barney, sending the overbearing but underachieving Levitt into a tailspin.
