Broken Arrow Stills

Some stills I captured from one of my favorite Jimmy Stewart westerns, Broken Arrow. This one happens not to be directed by Anthony Mann. These feature some angles, compositions and lighting, and take good advantage of the surroundings.

As was typical of Hollywood at the time, parts for Native Americans went to white folks like Debra Paget and Jeff Chandler. They do a decent job, but this casting mars the film, much like Natalie Wood in the The Searchers, as gorgeous as she is.
