Trivia

The film takes place in 1757. See more »

Goofs

The hairstyles worn by Evelyn Ankers and Julie Bishop are strictly in the 1946 mode. In the last half of the film, Julie Bishop wears a knee-length buckskin shift that is completely out of place by nearly two hundred years. The California scenery looks nothing like upstate New York, where the story is taking place. See more »

Curious ReMake...
9 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

L.O.T.R. (Redmen) aka 'Last Of The Redskins' was a postwar effort in 'B' adventure by Columbia Pictures. Featuring Cinecolor, a alternative to the more expensive (and beautiful) 3-Strip Technicolor. The plot was the reworking and simplification of 'The Last Of The Mohicans'. Eliminating several Action Sequences, Characters and Plot Elements. In other words, emasculating some of the best parts of the Film/Novel.

The most positive thing could be said about the Film is the curious casting. Columbia borrowing from other Studios, Jon Hall, Evelyn Ankers, Julie Bishop and Buster Crabbe with the quality Director Vincent Sherman. With the short running time of 79" being the films only other merit. Unfortunately being a Columbia feature and Produced by Sam Katzman you know it would be done on the cheap. The cheapness would continue in further Adventure Epics, but the leads would evolve to Paul Henreid, Cornel Wilde and John Derek.

A better watch would be 'The Last Of The Mohicans' (1936) a Edward Small Production or the 1992 version featuring Daniel Day-Lewis as HAWKEYE. The most complete version of T.L.O.T.M. was a BBC T.V. Serial in 1971 shown in the U.S.A. on Masterpiece Theater. Though largely Studio bound it was a dedicated and sincere production. So take a pass on L.O.T.R. and view the suggested three (3).
