14.
Saginaw Trail (1953) as Red Bird
Micgigan in 1827 was a bit off the beaten path for any B-western, especially one from Gene Autry, so Gene had to shed his Levis (since Mr. Strauss was about 20 years away from stitching his first pair together in San Francisco)and wear a different gun-belt, but the rest of his costume (hat and string-looped shirt)didn't make much of a bow in the authentic direction in this film, which finds the fur empire of Jules Brissac (Eugene Borden)in Michigan's Saginaw Valley wilderness being threatned by advancing settlers. His right hand henchman, Miller Webb (Myron Healey), dusguised as an Indian, leads renegade Delawares against the settlers.

Pony Soldier (1952) as Indian
In 1876, Duncan MacDonald joins the new, 300-member Mounted Police in western Canada, just in time for a dangerous mission. It seems the Cree Indians, raiding across the border in Montana, took two hostages for their safe return to Canada. But MacDonald, with only scout Natayo to help, will need all his diplomacy and then some to extract the captives from the midst of a thousand Cree.
