Storyline

In the year 1756, Fort William Henry on Lake George is under siege by the French and Hurons under General Montcalm. Alice and Cora Munro, young daughters of the British Commander, Colonel Munro, set out from Albany to join their father at the fort. They are accompanied by Major Duncan Heyward, who has loved Alice for a long time, and by a renegade Huron named Magua. He leads them astray with the view of betraying them into the hands of a wandering party of Hurons, but his plans are foiled by Hawkeye, a Colonial scout, when he and his comrades, Chingachgook and his son Uncas, rescue the party and conduct them safely to the fort. Shortly after wards, Munro surrenders on honorable terms to Montcalm and is permitted to march out of the fort under arms and colors. He is then mortally wounded by Magua during a massacre by the Indians as the fort is being evacuated. Cora and Alice are carried off by Magua and Heyward, aided by Hawkeye, Chingachgook and Uncas, sets out in search of them. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

" Gitchi Manitou welcome this Warrior to sit at the Great Council in the Sky "
15 April 2009 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Among the many movies in which he starred in, this film ranks as one of the best made by actor Randolph Scott. In this early 1936 screen version of noted author James Fenimore Cooper, who wrote " The Last of The Mochicans " Scott ably plays Hawkeye, the courageous adopted son of Chingachgook (Robert Barrat) Chief of the Mochicans. Hawkeye's Indian brother is Uncas, (Phillip Reed) the last of his tribe. This poignant Black and White film is especially memorable for viewing audiences as it allows the film's star to be convincingly threatened with a fiery death. The physical action is solid as is the acting of the assemble cast. A good example is otherwise good guy Bruce Cabot playing the hate filled Magua and does a wonderful job of it. Another surprise is Henry Wilcoxon playing Maj. Duncan Heyward who steals some of the spotlight from Scott as they struggle to match bravery and heroic deeds. Binnie Barnes and Heather Angel play the stalwart Munro sisters. Despite some overacting on the part of the enthusiastic extras, the film nevertheless delivers a worthwhile homespun adventure as expected from the era of The Good Old Days. ****
