Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Starbird and Sweet William was originally released as The Adventures of Starbird in 1975. A Martinez heads the cast as a Native American youth. While on plane trip en route to his home village, Martinez crashes in the wilderness. Here he is forced to emulate his forebears by fending for himself. Dan Haggerty, Louis Fitch, Skip Homeier and Skeeter Vaughn also appear in the cast. Despite the inherent danger in the central situation, Starbird and Sweet William is a very relaxed, leisurely 90-minute semi-travelogue.
