The invaders( Visual )

2 editions published between 1912 and 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the first great westerns, a broken-treaty tale whose power owes much to its Native American actors. At three reels, its portrayal of reluctant U.S. Cavalry troops forced to battle Sioux and Cheyenne was also an epic in 1912, when most films still squeezed their stories into a single reel. ... Although the Native American actors in The invaders remain mainly unidentified (the Sioux chief has sometimes been misidentified as William Eagleshirt, the lead in other Ince westerns), they perform with a subtle and complex pantomime that impressed critics even then. Ince's only complaint was that their gestural style was so restrained that their characters' anger against the whites could fail to register onscreen. It's easy to see why the Inceville westerns were regarded as so stirring in 1912. If they retain power now, it's partly because of their documentary-inflected visuals and partly because they are so unlike later Hollywood westerns, which would abandon Native American actors. The invaders allots something close to equal time for personal dramas among the natives, and is structured thorugh parallel plots within the Cavalry post and the Sioux village: in each a father must approve a suitor for his daughter. The simple story derives some of its force by combining the two key American fables of self-sacrifice on the frontier: a Custer story (a contingent of the Seventh Cavalry is again slaughtered) is joined to a Pocahontas story (a chief's daughter again saves a white community). ... For all the conventionality in The invaders' portrait of Indians--who are ultimately both savage and sentimentalized--the film retains surprises. Audiences might presume its title will refer to some rampaging redskins, but it is the eastern surveyors for the transcontinental railroad, laughing off Cavalry protection and treaty terms, who will prove to be 'the invaders'"--Film notes by Scott Simmon for More treasures from American film archives, 1894-1931

In the final shot, the Indian mother mourns her baby on its tiny burial scaffold
General Custer's last fight( Visual )

1 edition published in 1912 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Directed by and starring Francis Ford as Custer, this is a very well conceived film for its time (1912). The drama builds from the powerful closeup of the Sioux Indian at the opening as he kills 2 "innocent white men" to the climatic scene of Custer, his brother and others in the calvery engulfed in heavy fire and falling in battle one by one. The last stand is the centerpiece of the film, but the events on both sides leading up to the battle are fascinating. The first part shows the slow but steady movement of settlers into Indian territory, in violation of the signed treaties. At first there is peace, but soon blood is shed and the intensity of the confrontations build as the settlers spread westward. After the Battle of Little Big Horn, the scenes show the fate of the Sioux and Sittlng Bull in particular. This film is a fascinating look at these famous events a mere 36 years after the Battle of the Little Big Horn.--Compiled from reviews in the Internet Movie Database
