Buffalo Bill and the Indians, or Sitting Bull's History Lesson

Beverly Hills, CA: United Artists, 1976. Vintage portrait photograph of producer Dino De Laurentiis, promoting the 1976 film.

Dino De Laurentis was an Italian-American film producer, who, along with Italian film producer Carlo Ponti, helped bring Italian cinema to international acclaim, most notably films by Federico Fellini, Victtorio De Sica, and Roberto Rossellini. De Laurentis produced or co-produced more than 500 films, 38 of which had been nominated for Academy Awards.

Based on the 1968 play "Indians" by Arthur Kopit.

A revisionist look at the Buffalo Bill legend, in which the buffoonish Bill (Paul Newman) hires Chief Sitting Bull (Frank Kaquitts) to star in his Wild West Show, but finds himself frequently butting heads with Sitting Bull's own vision of the American west.

Shot on location in Alberta, Canada.
