A White Nationalist Classic.

This is another movie I would have produced myself if I had unlimited resources.

"Arrowhead" was filmed in 1953 and stars Charleton Heston. Its plot demonstrates that individual preferences and delusions give way to group identity during racial conflicts.

Charleton Heston plays Ed Bannon, an ex-Confederate soldier (still wearing his grey uniform trousers) working as a civilian scout for the Union Army after the War. Bannon grew up among the Apache and is an expert at tracking them and at anticipating their movements.

The Union Army officers have orders to make peace with the Apache and keep them on their reservations. They have delusions to match - delusions which Ed Bannon continuously argues against. Bannon knows that the Apache will pretend to make peace in order to gain an advantage in war.

The most remarkable feature of this movie is the series of personal inter-racial attachments which unravel in the face of racial conflict.

One of the White officers befriended the Apache leader, Toriano, at school and became his "blood brother." Mid way through the movie Toriano enters his office at the fort and shoots him while unarmed.

Bannon himself has a servant or "laundress" of half Mexican and half Apache descent with whom is also apparently having sex, but clearly does not love. The precise nature of their relationship is implied only and not shown explicitly - as was the norm in 1953. The half-breed laundress turns out to be a spy planted at the fort by Toriano. She attempts to kill Bannon in his sleep.

This movie is remarkable because it illustrates so many of the principles which apply to racial conflict:

1. Those on the frontier or border of the race have the most contract with the alien and have greatest degree of distrust and antagonism toward the alien. This distrust is not a "prejudice" based on the opinions of others, but rather is born of real world experience and extensive direct contact. Distrust is essential for both individual and group survival, because it has predictive power, as is shown with such force in this movie. Only those without such direct contact can entertain delusions which cripple their ability to defend themselves.

2. Extensive personal contact tends, over time, to exacerbate group conflict rather than decrease it, as individual status competition and conflicts between mingled members of different races tend to personalize the broader racial resource competition and conflict. Extensive childhood friendships with Whites and an Eastern boarding school education among deluded liberals only personalized and intensified Toriano's hatred and taught him the skills of concealment. Apache leaders without such contact were capable of making peace after Toriano was dead.

3. Interbreeding and hybridism tend to exacerbate group conflict, as interracial unions tend to split families and personalize the racial competition. Rejection by members of the extended family takes on a racial flavor and heightens racial sensitivity and anger in the race mixer as well as his or her relatives who do not mix. The hybrid offspring themselves often lack the balance between amity and enmity which children from racially homogeneous families and communities normally possess. For the half-breed, extreme expression of enmity is the one way to achieve group identity, as displayed so graphically in history by Lenin and Castro, and in this movie by Bannon's laundress.

In the end, after killing his Apache laundress, Bannon returns to the racial fold by accepting a white woman as his new love interest as he sets out to rescue his fellow whites from the consequences of their delusions.

It is a gem and a White Nationalist Classic.
