Episode Summary

EDIT
Meanwhile Back at the Studio
AIRED:
Kevin is producing and directing "Indian Country", slated to be the definitive story of the Indians of the Southwest. Filming begins in Arizona, and, without studio permission, Kevin elects to use real Indians,as opposed to actors. To finish the film, he transports the band of Indians back to California to finish the film. Led by Arthur Thunderbird, the Indians revolt when the realize that the script differs from their historical understanding of the events. They kidnap Paulette Douglas and hold her hostage in hopes that the studio will change the script. An Indian ancestor is located, who finally convinces them that the Indians were the losers of the battle in question. Interspersed throught the episode is J.F. Nash, a film exhibitor who has come to California to visit the studio. He is smitten by Rachel Holt, and wants her cast as a blonde Indian, or at the very least, a dance hall girl. Guest Starring: Michael Baselon as Arthur Thunderbird Written by: Joseph Bonaduce Directed by: Gary Nelsonmoreless

    • This episode is played for laughs. For example, J.F.Nash seriously suggests that Kevin should cast Richard Burton as an Indian. Grace insists that Paulette has an Indian heritage, but has no idea what tribe she is from. When Kevin tells Arthur he does not speak with a forked tongue, Arthur disdainfully asks him not to use ethnic stereotypes as a subtle form of condescension. Kevin has to report to the police that Paulette was kidnapped by a band of Indians driving a stagecoach.
