Klavan On The Culture

But I do notice that with cowboys and Indians, as with men and women, the usual, generally leftist, attacks on old-time Hollywood simply don’t hold up. Hollywood Indians of the 40′s and 50′s were often portrayed as flawed humans under attack from other humans, equally flawed. Likewise, while feminists always complain that women in old films are either bad girls or good wives, I’d be willing to bet there are more hard driving, high powered career women in 40′s and 50′s films than there actually were in the 40′s and 50′s.

Compare this to films today, where “noble savages” are typically the victims of demonic white invaders and women are almost nothing like real women, but either ridiculously powerful warriors or unbelievably happy sluts.
