A retelling of The Last of the Mohicans with just enough changes to qualify for a different title. Major Heyward and Hawk-Eye escort three children of an officer to safety during the French and Indian War. The addition of young Davy created several misadventures that enlivened the journey.
Duncan's horse in the film, Rex (no, not the King of the Wild Horses Rex) was owned by Buzzy Henry. See more »
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 »

One more version of the oft-filmed LAST OF THE MOHICANS, this one was shot in color and has what might be described as an 'interesting' cast. The big surprise, perhaps, is the Jon Hall does not play the scout Hawkeye, though at about the same time he attempted to make the changeover from sarong-star, most often opposite Dorothy Lamour, into a western hero, having played the legendary scout Kit Carson in a relatively big budget production from Edward Small. Instead, he's Duncan, the up-tight British officer who vies with Hawkeye during the French and Indian war. Michael O'Shea plays Hawkeye, and what's most intriguing about the film is that he does it as a character role, coming much closer to the "Natty Bumppo" of James Fenimore Cooper's books than is usually the case with Hollywood, where Hawkeye almost invariably is turned into a conventional hero figure, tall, dark and handsome. The pace is sometimes sluggish, though the film remains of interest in terms of the way in which it sometimes closely follows and at other moments departs from the source. Most offbeat of all is the casting of Buster Crabbe, usually a hero of outer space (Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers) or the old west (Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp in B movies) as the evil Magua, a Huron who betrays Alice and Cora Munro - certainly the biggest stretch of Crabbe's career.
