Director:
Robert Altman (I)
Released:
1976
Rating:
PG
Buffalo Bill And The Indians, also known as Sitting Bull's History Lesson, is an iconoclastic 1976 Western starring Paul Newman as the legend of the Old West in later days. In 1885, William "Buffalo Bill" Cody (Paul Newman) no longer fights Indians, but runs an entertainment extravaganza that mythologizes the Wild West with singers, stunt riders and sure shots like Annie Oakley (Geraldine Chaplin). When Chief Sitting Bull (Frank Kaquitts), the man who defeated General Custer at Wounded Knees, agrees to join the show, Cody expects him to play his part as a defeated representative of his tribe. Instead, the Chief refuses to even speak to Cody, except through his interpreter William Halsey (William Sampson). Halsey, in turn, demands rewrites to the show to accurately reflect history. Acclaimed director Robert Altman ("Gosford Park) contrasts the comedy of show biz egos with the real-life historical figures in this satire about how the West was won.
