    Description

    Redskin (Paramount, 1929). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A. Richard Dix stars as Wing Foot, a Pueblo Indian taken from his land as a child, and forced to speak English and learn the ways of the white man. Attending college, he becomes a star athlete and excels in all his studies, while enduring the racism of his classmates. He graduates from medical school and returns to the reservation, where he is shunned by his people for being "too white." A searing indictment of the government's efforts to "civilize" the Native American population, Redskin was filmed as an epic Western follow-up to the 1926 film The Vanishing American, the title character of which was also played by Dix, who actually was part American Indian. Redskin was partially filmed in two-strip Technicolor and in its initial run was shown in Magnascope, an early widescreen process. There were pinholes in the corners, light fold wear, and minor chips on the top and bottom right corners. The poster has been professionally restored, giving it a beautiful appearance. The colors are strikingly deep and rich, and the art faithfully depicts Dix's "man of two worlds" dilemma. Fine+ on Linen.
