1929. USA. Directed by Victor Schertzinger. Screenplay by Elizabeth Pickett, based on her novel Navajo. With Richard Dix, Gladys Belmont, Tully Marshall, Noble Johnson. A deeply moving story of a young Navajo caught between two cultures, Redskin also partakes of its era's ethnic assumptions and prejudices. Yet its heartfelt performances and gorgeous two-strip Technicolor photography make it a classic late silent film. Print courtesy The Library of Congress. Silent, with musical accompaniment. Approx. 82 min.
