The Broken Chain (1993)

Maybe you missed this tv movie too - maybe you had better things to do in the 90s than watch afternoon movies...anyway this is a biopic of Joseph Brant with Pierce Brosnan as Sir William Johnson. It covers the Seven Years War and the Revolution. Not that bad - even Wes Studi pops up. This probably isn't the best sequence but it's all I can find on the net. If you want to read a bit more about the Eastern frontier as depicted by Hollywood go to my page on the subject here.

  1. These could have been good movies if they had payed more attention to detail. In this one the Indian village is all wrong and in Follow the River the dress is not in period. I have not watched either movie right through!
    I wonder when we will see a colonial movie of the early to mid 18th century where everything is right!? The Last Of The Mohicans was not bad.
