A chicken hawk, unhappy that he is seldom visited at his home in a zoo, attempts to improve his image. Chief among the devices he uses to lure visitors to his compound is a dramatic rendering of "The Winning of the West," in which he features himself in scenes as "King Chicken Hawk," builder of the nation's first railroad; as "William Allen Chicken Hawk," editor of the first frontier newspaper; and as "Judge Roy Bird-- Law West of the Pecos." A group of children and the adults who brought them are induced to play the supporting parts. History takes a beating, but so does the ego of the Chicken Hawk, who accepts at the end and identity closer to reality.
University of Texas at El Paso in 1973 directed by Gifford W. Wingate
