The Battle at Elderbush Gulch (1913)
Director: D. W. Griffith
Writers: D. W. Griffith; Henry Albert Phillips
A pair of young orphaned girls and their pet dogs arrive in the West to live with their uncle; their uncle says the dogs cannot live inside and turns them out. Indians, in the midst of the "Feat of the Dog", run out of food and send a raiding party to seize the animals, touching off a war. Though a rather odd plot for a Western, somewhat racist to modern eyes, the scope and extravagance of this production is astonishing for 1913. Forerunner to The Birth of a Nation (1915).
