Synopsis
Raquel Welch made a personal crusade of getting this film about a legendary Blackfoot Indian woman shown. Not only was it her TV acting debut, but also a production of her own company, filmed in 1979 as a three-hour movie, adapted by novelist Evan Hunter from Colin Stuart's book. It finally was scheduled as a two hour and forty minute film nearly three years later, but at the last instant another fifteen minutes were shorn from it by simply lopping off the final reel and patching on the last scene, making the ending nearly incomprehensible, and showing Raquel (as Walks Far) at the age of 102, shortly before the real-life Indian's death in 1953. Except for the star and Bradford Dillman, as a white trader with whom Walks Far falls in love, all the actors were either Indian or Mexican-American.
