Superlative photography by Vilimos Zsigismond highlights the family-oriented outdoor drama Journey to Spirit Island. Set in the Pacific Northwest, the films stars Bettina as Maria, a teenaged Native American girl. When her grandmother organizes a protest against defiling their ancestors' sacred burial ground, Maria takes up the cudgel. The villains are the requisite Evil Land Developers, who seek to transform Spirit Island into a vacation resort. The producer of Journey to Spirit Island was Bruce Clark, previously the director of such on-location fare as Hammer (1972) and Ski Bum (1975).
