This is an Australian production - generally available at the $1.00 bin at Stop & Shop. Worth every penny, and more so.
IT makes a good effort to tell the story without overly romanticizing it, but there are some questionable, even amusing errors that run through it.
Natty Bumpo is dressed like a Tennessee frontiersman, complete with southern drawl and coonskin cap. Now figures like Bumpo are the model for later romantic characters of popular literature, but goes a bit too far. Also, a young George Washington is placed in Fort William Henry as Munro's aide, which a bit of a hike from the areas where he actually served.
Cooper mangled much of the history and ethnography, so it would be stingy to begrudge the Aussies for fooling around, so I give it a 7.
