Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Native American actor Will Sampson (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) plays the title role in Fish Hawk. Sampson's character starts out on the wrong foot by getting roaring drunk at the slightest opportunity. In response to a hero-worshipping young farm boy (Charlie Fields), the man swears off booze and becomes a useful member of the community.
