Plot: Captain Smith is spared his mutinous hanging sentence after captain Newport’s ship arrives in 1607 to found Jamestown, an English colony in Virginia. The initially friendly natives, who have no personal property concept, turn hostile after a ‘theft’ is ‘punished’ violently on the spot. During an armed exploration, Smith is captured, but spared when the chief’s favorite daughter Pocahontas pleads for the stranger who soon learns to love their way of harmonious life.
