“In the Land of the War Canoes” was originally called “In the Land of the Head-Hunters” and this was truer. It was like watching “Nanook of the North,” a rare anthropological spy treat into ways of a people as extinct as the dodo. Oh the precious scenes of what people wore and their dances and costumes and how they courted and warred. The special secret treat of watching a man hoping for visions. I became lost in time.
