Master 2 - Tape 2 Interesting shot of Indians (Native Americans) helping the British Redcoats fight the Americans during the Revolutionary War. Footage shot in the 1910s or 1920s, recreated for that period. Indians look much different than they would later become for Hollywood. First shot is a back shot, as they run out, axes flying in the air. A bunch of Redcoats are seen from the back with bayonets, but it's becoming a chaotic mob scene, possible a slaughter/massacre. WS chaos in a town (house in f/g) Indian axes a dead person on the ground twice and runs off. MS Raping and pillaging (men chasing women, general destruction) Hand-to-hand combat. Made for silent film days. More appropriate as film history or as history of our impressions of Native Americans than it is as stock
