Deputy Sheriff Coop (Robert Redford) is the son of a revered Indian scalper who fought in the Indian wars. But now they are over, Coop s job is to stop any Indians from getting liquored up and causing trouble on the settlements. Having to take orders from Dr Elizabeth Arnold (Susan Clark), who is in charge of the Indian s welfare, riles with Coop s masculinity, and their tempestuous relationship descends into sexual frustrations. But when a quarrelsome Indian, Willie Boy (Robert Blake), kills his lover s father and runs away with her, Coop has to gather together a posse to hunt Willie Boy across the desert to a showdown at Ruby Mountain. Based on a true event in 1909, Tell Them Willie Boy is Here is the story of the one the last Western manhunts by posse and was voted one of the ten best films of 1969. It also marked a successful return to directing by Abraham Polonsky, one of the original Hollywood Ten who had been blacklisted for eighteen years for un-American activities . The script was written by Polonsky and its manhunt is often seen as a metaphor for the persecution of outsiders by the wider society. That Robert Blake (Willie Boy) was also pursued for murder in real life is one of those coincidences that blur the distinction between Hollywood and real life.
