1939 · Los Angeles
Shirley Temple is orphaned after an Indian attack, but subsequently becomes the mascot of a Canadian Mountie outpost headed by Randolph Scott, and is ultimately responsible for establishing peace between the Mounties and the Blackfleet-but not before Scott is nearly burned at the stake, and not before Shirley can smoke a peace pipe with a Blackfoot Indian. Originally released in the short-lived sepiatone format.
