The players are very natural redmen
1 September 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

An interesting picture of Indians. It tells a melodramatic love story and deals with life at Carlisle College. It interests chiefly because it shows the life of these Indians just as though they were white men, and so makes it seem as though we were getting more from it than we really are. The players are very natural redmen; they seem to be real Indians, especially Harold Lockwood and Amy Trask, who play the romantic leads. A.E. Garcia plays the villain. H. Otto and A.W. Filson play two chiefs most naturally. - The Moving Picture World, May 3, 1913
