Each day we bring you one stunning little glimpse of history in the form of a historical photograph. Enjoy!
Ah, another wonderful portrait by Gertrude Kasebier, the same woman who took, the Portrait (Miss N), shown the day before yesterday.
Looks like a Tusseaud Wax figure. Looks like a man with a strong sense of calm.
Looking at this picture, I recall the great but somewhat forgotten American actor, Jeff Chandler. He was a prominent actor in the 50's and starred along with Jimmy Stewart in the classic film "Broken Arrow" (in which he played Kochis). I believe that he was of American Indian heritage. A great classic western that I would strongly suggest anyone to check out. P>S. Chandler had a lucrative career but died on the operating table, the result of medical malpractice, in 1961.
pope your right,was a great movie,and i also believe he did have some native backround,he played that part very well,sad about his demise tho,,malpractice,too bad.oldbear
