: Did anyone happen to see this movie, The Last of His Tribe, the other evening? It was about Ishi and I'm wondering how true to the real story it was. It was actually a pretty good movie. I found some information about it in the movie database (URL below). Interestingly, it was made in 1992 - perhaps that was the "Year of Movies About the Last of Their Tribes" (must have been something in the air).
: Anyone know about this?
Hi Sarah -
Check our History Page on the subject (link below) ...
The basic story, as seen in the film, is true. As usual, liberties were taken, particularly in the portrayal of Kroeber's wife.
