Children of the West

Alfred Kjerulf, 1917,

MOST WANTED |The Wild West as depicted by Nordisk Film – we would love to see that.


WHAT'S IT ABOUT?
Natural scientist Murphy gets lost and ends up with a tribe of Native Americans, where the chief’s daughter To-to tends to him lovingly. They get married and have a child, little Pawa, but not everyone in the tribe is happy about the alliance with the white man. The chief’s sister, Narrova, will stop at nothing to destroy the small family.


WHAT ELSE DO WE KNOW?
Unsurprisingly, there are no Native Americans in the film. Nordisk Film has, to the best of its ability, turned Philip Bech into a chief, while Karen Sandberg plays both To-to and her daughter Pawa.
