Short Circuit oddity
#1
The film from the mid 1980's. It was part of my childhood. So showing it to my son and after reading about it on IMDb turns out the Indian character was played by a white guy in make up. Were there no available Indian actors in Hollywood in the 80's and isn't this a bit Al Jolson?

Imitating Indians (both types) seems to be something of a wild card, racism-wise.
