Overview

Whether true or not (evidence indicates "not"), the legend of Captain John Smith and Pochahontas is one of history's great romantic stories. This 1953 filmization of the story was made on a near-nonexistent budget. Anthony Dexter, who two seasons earlier had starred in the unsuccessful biopic Valentino, plays Captain Smith, while Jody Lawrence, a Columbia all-purpose heroine, is Indian maiden Pocahontas. After rescuing Smith from the wrath of her father (Douglass Dumbrille), Pocahontas is presented to the court of Britain's King James II. In flashback, Captain Smith attempts to explain why Pocahontas chose not to marry him, but his best friend Rolfe (Robert Clarke) instead.
