Portrayed by: Burt Lancaster
Hasn't America done enough to the Native Americans? Did Hollywood really need to cast pale, blue-eyed Burt Lancaster as the lead in a film about an Apache warrior, and try to pass him off as Native American by giving him a tan?
No. No they did not. But they did, and so Lancaster’s role as the Apache warrior Massai in 1954’s Apache is part of our country’s cinematic history.
