"played by white"

The campaign was based on many duplicities. The first of them was that Iron Eyes Cody was actually born Espera de Corti — an Italian-American who played Indians in both his life and on screen. The commercial's impact hinged on the emotional authenticity of the Crying Indian's tear.


Just accept it as a quaint artifact of the times. Obviously the movie is *****, as are 99% of  movies frankly.  In Limehouse Blues another Anna Mae Wong movie George Raft plays a Chinese man. Anna Mae Wong was herself sort of a historical character as she was the first Chinese woman to be a movie star in America.

But it's worth going through them for all sorts of period details that would otherwise be lost today.
