I'm willing to bet no one guessed my choice for "I" this week at Tag Tuesday. I'd also be willing to bet many of you never heard the name Iron Eyes Cody. He made a ton of movies going back to 1926, and also did a lot of TV work from the 50s through the 80s. What I did not know was he was actually Italian, and not Native American! What?! Talk about good acting!
One reason I chose Iron Eyes Cody is he was the Native American portrayed in the "Keep America Beautiful" TV commercials of the 1970s. He is known as "The Crying Indian" from those commercials. Back in the day, I wrote to the KAB council and requested some of their free materials (yes, I said "free"). This poster was one of the items I received. It hangs in my bedroom hall.
