This was a very nice story and good family entertainment. But try as hard as I
may I could not wrap my mind around the concept of a blond blue eyed part
Cherokee. In fact according to the script young Lexi Johnson is one quarter
Cherokee and her looks, beautiful as she is don't compute.
Now that she's a teen and her father has recently passed away, the Cherokees who
still live in Tennessee have sent her to live with her uncle who's got himself some
really nice digs in a mansion. But he's away and his lawyer Dean Jones is
running the place. Then the uncle is reported missing after a ship goes down
After that relations start pouring out of the woodwork but even Jones doesn't
know where the will is. That starts a hunt with Johnson and some friends she's made looking for the will. The relatives want the whole pile and are looking to cut each other out as well as our young heroine.
The action takes place in the year of 1899 and the sets and cinematography
certainly do reflect the era nicely. The ending is an interesting one and the
very end does provide some explanation for our heroine's blond looks.
Still can't quite buy it though.
