Lobby card for Redskin movie

Description (Brief)
Lobby card for the 1929 Paramount film Redskin, starring Richard Dix. The card features a bust-level sketch of Dix in Navajo costume as the character Wing Foot. Redskin, directed by Victor Shertzinger, tells the story of a young Navajo man, Wing Foot, who attends school on the East Coast. Upon returning to his tribe, he renounces their customs and beliefs, and is cast out. He is able to win back their respect and avert an intertribal war by securing a lucrative claim for oil drilling rights. The film featured a synchronized sound score and sound effects, and was partially filmed in Technicolor.
