"False Faces" begins with Major Adams (William Walsh, eighth of nine) assigning Hawkeye the task of looking into a series of thefts of furs and munitions by a gang wearing the masks of the Mingo False Faces, medicine men that Chingachgook is convinced make good medicine. Mingo Chief Sanchu (Ed Holmes, third of four) assures Hawkeye that his people are available if needed, while young Mingo squaw Snowbird (Helene Gilbert) is horrified to find her husband Raven (Fred Euringer, last of three) attacked and robbed by the very gang that Hawkeye is searching for. Captain McIntyre (Peter Humphreys, fourth of five) actually finds the stolen munitions behind Raven's cabin, and arrests the innocent brave on a tip from trading post owner Happy Jack Sealy (Larry D. Mann, last of three), and his associate Kling (Jon Granik, last of three). Chingachgook follows the trail left by the real thieves, and discovers an unoccupied cabin full of stolen merchandise, the key to solving the mystery and catching the real culprits. The Mohican also gets in the last word concerning Raven's loving wife Snowbird: "not easy for man to see through false face, but easy for squaw!" Larry D. Mann was just beginning a long and distinguished career as a busy TV actor and voice artist, his best known feature perhaps being 1967's "In the Heat of the Night."
