Cotter is a Sioux Indian whose life takes a tragic turn when his drinking causes him to fail in his job as a rodeo clown and save a rider from an enraged bull. Returning to his birthplace, seeking an old friend, Cotter finds himself faced with despair and depression. Events take a grim turn when a rancher is found dead and the hostile townspeople blame the 'drunken Indian'. As a lynch mob searches for him, and he tries to get help from his friends, the hunted Cotter learns a grim lesson in regards to his fellow humans. Written by alfiehitchie

Oddball movie
8 August 2004 | by banders46See all my reviews

Don Murray plays a down-and-out drunken "redskin" rodeo clown accused of murder (wow) in this early 1970s noble-loner flick. The movie is worth checking out if you're interested in either Don Murray or Rip Torn. Both of them give performances that sometimes go over the top, but there are fine, more subtle moments as well. Don Murray's drunken Indian dance is quite strange. The film seems dated in many ways (akin to the Billy Jack movies), but it's not bad.

Note: The film's credits list Christopher Knight of the Brady Bunch, and I had read somewhere else that he did this movie, but I didn't see him in it anywhere.
