NOTES

powered by AFI

Although the first production chart for the film listed it as "3-D," the viewed print was not in 3-D and that process was not mentioned in reviews or other contemporary sources. Some reviews list actress Jody Lawrence as Jody Lawrance. Exteriors were filmed in Bronson Canyon, Los Angeles. Hollywood Reporter production charts include the following actors in the cast: Robert Shayne, Norma de Lanza, Taylor Flanniken, John Harmon and Saul Gorss. Their appearances in the released film has not been confirmed.
       Although the characters of Captain John Smith, Pocahontas and others were based on real-life figures in history, many liberties were taken in the retelling of the incidents portrayed in the film. The historical record of the events at colonial Jamestown first appeared in Smith's book Generall Historie of Virginia, which was published in 1624. Pocahantas, born ca. 1595, married John Rolfe in 1614 and some time later moved with him to England, where she died on May 21, 1617. Other filmed versions of the story include a 1948 short entitled Captain John Smith, Explorer, a 1955 short entitled Captain John Smith-Founder of Virginia and the 1995 Walt Disney Pictures animated feature Pocahantas.
