Viewing Notes

A John Ford non-western shot in Technicolor in 1939. More historically accurate than most movies about the American Revolution but still negatively portrays Native Americans. I’ve been thinking of watching a bunch of Westerns but not sure how I’ll react to all the inaccurate portrayals of Indians.
