'The Searchers' by Glenn Frankel falters in its portrayal of Native Americans
Oh, America and its Westerns! For as long as America has been making itself, it has been just as busy manufacturing its meanings, and Westerns have evolved as the dominant artistic medium in which America has gone about its noble and complicated work. In “The Searchers: The Making of an American Legend,” Glenn Frankel brilliantly makes a case for “The Searchers” as the ne plus ultra of the form.
