Red Man's View The 1

The Red Man’s View is a 1909 American Western film directed by D. W. Griffith and shot in New York state. Prints of the film exist in the film archives of the Museum of Modern Art and the Library of Congress.[1]

According to the New York Dramatic Mirror, the film is about “the helpless Indian race as it has been forced to recede before the advancing white, and as such is full of poetic sentiment”.[2]

According to Scott Simon, “the film’s title works out to mean “The Red Man’s Point of View”, and for all the film’s difficulty in making drama from a long, passive march, there’s nothing like The Red Man’s View in Hollywood until John Ford’s Cheyenne Autumn more than fifty years later”.[3]
