Caught Between Two Worlds
10 September 2011 | by dougdoepkeSee all my reviews

Offbeat story, again showing vitality of the early series. Bereaved mother (Seldes) adopts white-skinned Indian boy (Votrian) to replace son lost earlier to Indians. However, the resistant boy refuses to adopt white man ways, causing trouble in town, especially when his tribe escapes from Fort Dodge.

Fairly uncompromising narrative of boy caught between two worlds. Votrian, a popular young actor of the time, delivers an extraordinarily fine performance in the pivotal role—catch his apt expressions even when not speaking. I particularly like the realistic way the screenplay treats the interests of both sides, which makes the climax even more thought provoking.

Combine here the expert cast with a thoughtfully suspenseful script and pretty good production values, and you can see why the series caught on big time with the viewing audience.
