This is one of twelve filmings of the classic Fenimore Cooper novel, eight on film and two for television. Having seen the 1936 and 1992 versions, I can definitely say this 1920 version is heads above the other two. What is most amazing is the direction and the cinematography. All of the actions and the acting are restrained by 1920s standards, giving the film a realism it might otherwise have lacked. There are over two dozen impeccably composed shots which give the film majesty and an overall beauty that stuns. The narrative is true to the original book. Very highly recommended for all lovers of film artistry. A compelling experience.
