Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta POT-LUCK THE KAINAI NEWS, Can- ada's leading Indian newspaper, says Chitf Dan George of the Salish tribe has been acclaimed by New York critics for his role in a new movie entitled Little Big Man. Some of the film were photographed in Alberta. Criticis almost unanimously acclaimed the natural per- formance of Dan George, a Salish chief from Vancouver who plays the role of Old Lodge Skins, a Cheyenne chief who adopted Jack a 121-year-old Crabb. codger claims to have been raised by By D'ARCY RICKARD the Cheyenne Indians and to be the last white survivor of Ouster's Last Stand. Kainai News cays one critic, in a near-ecstatic review, says "the 70s has its first great epic. Blood brother to the 1903 one-reeler. The Great Train Robbery, Little Big Man is the new western to begin all west- erns." Director Arthur Penn had sought unsuccessfully to get Sir Laurence Olivier or Paul Scofield for the Indian chief role. Then he awarded the part to Richard Boonc. He resigned before filming started. Timber project needs backers PINCHER CRKEK (lie very near says Mr. The third day of the recent evelopment meeting on the eigan Indian Reserve reveal- d plans for full scale timber industry.

The purpose of the meeting will be to outline the financial aspects of the hospital. Mrs. Hose Moriyama, in pre- enting the nursing report, noted in physiotherapy there were 385 visits with 638 treat- ments given for December. The occupancy for the same period was 66.9 per cent. At an earlier meeting Ben CHIEF DAN GEORGE "WHAT THEUEU YOU TRYING TO 00. WIN MY Only then did Penn assign the role to Chief George and in this was "plumb lucky." Dan George's stoicism and grace give him an almost Biblical presence. Another critic says the chief's "nobility of behavior and long-lasting loyalty sets records." The scene where the chief prepares for his1 own imminent death is said to be priceless. It appears that Chief Dan George is a sage who is also a clown in his part in this mo- tion picture. When he dramatically lies out atop a Mil to await death all he gets is rain in the face It is the moment that reveals what Little Big Man is really about. Some criticis wonder how In dians will respond to their film treatment ranging from gravi respect to buffoonery.
