Broken Arrow (1950) (Hugo Friedhofer)

Here's another post that just goes to prove that if I wait long enough someone else will post it. It was an old request from 'Watson' (and later seconded by 'Seasy') and I uploaded it before I got sick, but didn't get a chance to post it. I hated that 'Watson' had to wait so long before his request was fulfilled, but of course, someone else finally did it when 'Scoreman' was generous enough to post it, but I still had the link so I didn't want it to go to waste.

It also serves as another convincing argument as to why I haven't posted anything lately. My role as a blogger is somewhat debatable now, but still I continue even though it seems increasingly superfluous. Well, so be it.

This is the score to the 1950 Western starring Jimmy Stewart and Jeff Chandler as Cochise (I wonder if he was wearing an angora sweater?). Not to be confused with the 1996 action movie starring Christian Slater and John Travolta (who may or may not have been wearing angora......no, maybe that's Hairspray).

This led to a TV series adaptation starring Michael Ansara as Cochise. At least I'm pretty sure that it was based on the success of this film otherwise it was a pretty huge coincidence that it had the same title and was also about Cochise.

You occasionally hear this movie referred to as one of the first instances of having a native American character as a leading character (or perhaps just a story that is a little more from the Indian point-of-view). I have trouble thinking of films prior to this one where that was true, so that may be right. One in a long continuum continuing through Dances With Wolves, I suppose. Still going to be something of a 'noble red man' stereotype in the 1950's, I guess, but that's still better than drunken renegade, brutal savage, or generic villain. And you have to start somewhere.

Well, in any case, enjoy this superfluous offering!

THANK YOU!!!! So very much for this one! Does anyone have the "7 Cities of Gold/Rains of Raunchipur Varese release? Thank You, very much, once again!
 
Hi Honored General!

You are very welcome! And about 7 Cities, 'Watson' was kind enough to post it a while back and maybe if you ask him nicely he'll repost? I'll probably be asking for too at some point since I think I also missed it. :))
