Captain John Smith and Pocahontas is a 1953 Hollywood retelling of the legendary tale of the English explorer Smith (Anthony Dexter), and his dangerous and controversial love affair with the Indian princess, Pocahontas (Jody Lawrence). Structured as a series of flashbacks, Smith recounts his tale to the court of King James I (Anthony Eustral) on his return to England from the Jamestown colony. He describes his attempts to make peace with the Indians following unrest in the colony, only to be captured by the Powhatan Indian confederacy and sentenced to death. Pocahontas, the daughter of the Powhatan chief, rescues Smith and instead of an execution, the two are married. After returning to the Jamestown tribe, the settlers begin to stir up trouble with the Indians despite Smith's attempts to keep the peace. Can Smith prevent an all out war between the settlers and the Indians? Can his relationship with Pocahontas last? Captain John Smith and Pocahontas was directed by Lew Landers, from a script by Aubrey Wisberg and Jack Pollexfen.moreless
