The first-run syndicated series "Last of the Mohicans" was based on the classic James Fenimore Cooper novel and was set along the New York-Canadian border during the French and Indian War. Veteran character actors John Hart starred as frontiersman Hawkeye and Lon Chaney Jr. as his Mohican blood-brother Chinachgook.The series followed Hawkeye and Chingachgook's adventures as they attempted to keep the settlers of the new frontier safe from the various warring parties.
The series was filmed in Canada so if a given episode was set in the winter, you could actually see their breath! The entire series was filmed on location so the series, though otherwise fairly routine, boasted actual outdoor locations and paid close attention to detail such the loading and use of muskets.
After its initial run the series was played endlessly in reruns for many years and is still a well remembered series.
