This rare quasi~doco chronicling a day in the life of a group of twenty-something Native Americans
The film features Yvonne Williams, Homer Nish, and Tommy Reynolds.
Filming was done in 1958. The film features rock and roll music composed for the film and performed by The Revels.
The cast of American Indian actors are notable for their lack of self-consciousness as they drink and socialize during a night out on the town ending in a 49 party of drumming and dancing on "Hill X" overlooking downtown LA~ at the time~ chavez ravine, now dodger stadium.
Known to cinephiles, but remaining largely unseen by the public ~The Exiles has rich images of history that was once LA.
