Kidnapping by Indians (1899)

Out-takes of the world's earliest ever 'Western' film.

Drama 1899 2 mins Silent


This appears to be abortive material shot for the film released in 1899 as Kidnapped by Indians. The narrative is baffling as the ethnicity of the costumes is unclear, but seems to concern two girls in a camp who are attacked by 'Red Indians'. The Indians set fire to the camp and a gunfight ensues during which one of the girls is rescued by cowboys. It may be a scene from a well-known show.
