In the sepia tones of his still shots are the unforgettable faces that are immediately recognizable as Curtis' photography. In 1914 he made the first full-length motion picture of an aboriginal North American society. In the Land of the Head-Hunters portrayed the Kwakiutl Indians of the Northwest Coast in dramatic and vibrant style. Curtis hoped for critical acclaim and financial reward from this film, yet while it was highly praised by reviewers, it was a financial disaster. After its premiere in New York and Seattle, it slipped into obscurity for sixty years until George Quimby and Bill Holm presented a restored version in 1973.
