Broken Arrow

Broken Arrow is a 1950 Western film directed by Delmar Daves and starring Jimmy Stewart, Jeff Chandler, Debra Paget, Will Geer and Jay Silverheels (in an uncredited role).

You can watch it at youtube in parts that should autoplay from here:

The Western Review says it "has aged gracefully in its treatment of race relations where so many of its contemporaries appear (their other merits aside) offensively grizzled." Variety calls it "an appealing, sentimental Indian romance, with plenty of action." The New York Times has a review from 1950 that says, "one might wonder from this exhibit ... whether it isn't the white man, not the Indian, who should be regarded as "good" only when he is dead." TCM and MSN have overviews.
