The Uncle Sam Moving Picture Company, which is located in Oklahoma, is at work on Indian pictures. A French company touring the United States fixes up Pawnee as a good location for just that same sort of work, and stops off there. Neither company knew of the other, but each spied a bulletin board in front of the local newspaper office, which gave warning that the Indians were on the warpath. Both companies, made up as grease paint Indians, mistake each other for a band of real Indians, The actors are panic-stricken and make ludicrous efforts to escape to safety. However, they discover the real situation and join in the fun heartily when the laugh is turned on them.

    A unique Indian comedy made by William Haddock's company in Oklahoma last winter. In the cast were Lamar Johnstone and Hal Wilson. A company of French moving picture actors come into the Indian country to make an Indian picture. The company is attacked by red men. It is a burlesque, of course, but it will make a lot of fun. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
