Note the spelling of Indian as the State of Indiana in this blurb from the pressbook for WHERE THE NORTH BEGINS (Screen Guild, 1947), one of the Mountie adventures starring Russell Hayden.

Did anybody ever double check pressbook writeups?

THE LAW RIDES AGAIN (Monogram, 1943) was the second of the Monogram Trail Blazers series, and starred Ken Maynard and Hoot Gibson.  Kenneth Harlan portrays a crooked Indian Agent who is keeping promised cattle shipments from the Indians.  And he is assisted by B-movie vet Jack La Rue (as an escaped convict) and other Harlan henchies were Hank Bell, John Merton and Chief Thunder Cloud.  In the above lobby card, Artie Ortego is top center wearing the full headdress and has his bow and arrow at rest.  Chief Many Treaties (Bill Hazlett) as 'Chief Barking Fox' is wearing the full headdress and is on the right. That may be Augie Gomez, aiming the rifle, at the bottom center of this lobby card. The other players are unidentified.
