Gunfight in Wild West LS street in Western town, showdown between two men, one with rifle, the other looking like the sheriff in black suit and pistol. Strangely, onlookers are standing around BEHIND each of the men, which would not seem wise. The rifleman shoots, and the black-suited man falls, but draws his gun and kills the rifleman. The townspeople rush in to crowd around the victims. CU dead pistol-packer on the ground

Silent B&W shot of cavalry moving in large formation on horses. This looks like the real thing, but then we have clips of bad-looking gun guy out of the silent Western movie era. A woman comes in and puts on holster and pistol, ready to go and fight. She leaves, and he looks even more glum. Back to the cavalry, riding in formation, galloping towards the camera with flag. The pedigree of this film is unclear, but the soldiers look to be pre-WW1 vintage, perhaps shot for use in a Western. Brief sequence at end of gunslinger type clambering over rocks.

Also some good high-angle LSs of main street in the old west with horse drawn carts and pedestrian traffic.

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

The posse comes after him. The posse head has a white hat on. MS they all come to a stop, look around. There appear to be two groups. They look around and then join up with each other to after the lone guy.

(Window in bar has "Saloon" painted in old west lettering, a "closed" sign hangs in front as the guy tries to break his way in anyway.) Another cowboy (with kerchief) takes a chair and smashes it through the window. Then he jumps through the broken window, into the saloon. Fight goes on outside, on the steps. Guys are wrestling, both wearing gun holsters. One wears black hat. Good western action.

But there's no blood. Overhead MS of townspeople runing away from street - chaos. Overhead WS of townspeople carrying both men, assumed dead, off the street.
