The Arrow Speaks

Westerns are not only entertaining but instructional as we learn about our early history and wild times. Include Jimmy Stewart, Jeff Chandler, a few other familiar faces, some whiskey dust, horses, Indians and gunplay and we get another version of history to enjoy. Oh yes, a love interest too. This was the real West where you rifle, your pony and yourself made a life come what may. It was up to you. No excuses and truly you reap what you sow. Enjoy

The Only Good Indian ...

It's no bad thing that serious students of Cinema will always have to deal with this as it represented a forward step in terms of the time (1950) in which it was made and the climate of the time. Seen for the first time in the second decade of the21st century when what may be called reverse ethnic cleansing has seen deification bestowed on everyone from Ghengis Khan to Hitler, Stalin, Papa Doc Duvalier, Uncle Tom Cobleigh and all we may well find nothing remarkable in a film that portrayed the Apache as a Human Being with a 'prick us, do we not bleed' point of view but in 1950 this was revolutionary. Albert Maltz - ironically blacklisted at the time - turned his screenplay over to the capable hands of Delmer Daves, James Stewart and Jeff Chandler, who treated it respectfully and wrought a fine movie out of it.

The Original Try-Hard Liberal Hogwash

Broken Arrow is a bit of a precursor to Dances With Wolves and I don't mean that as a compliment.

You've got your Indians being portrayed as human beings rather than savages.

You've got whites portrayed as clueless bumblers and interlopers.

You've got a pathetically painted white woman portraying the Indian love interest.

You've got bad dialogue stiffly delivered.

You've got narration for half-wits who can't follow the story.

And you've got beautiful photography and exciting action sequences.

Jimmy Stewart delivers his lines so indignantly and earnestly the words come across as a first-semester term paper from a co-ed at Arizona State University majoring in Southwest American studies.

The love angle is cringe-worthy. I almost barfed when they kissed.

If you want to learn about Arizona native tribes visit the Heard Museum in Phoenix. If you want to get an eyeful of Sonoma, go visit it in person because it's even more beautiful in real life than on film.
