Chaney Jr. Had Hart
4 May 2006 | by animal_8_5See all my reviews

John Hart, former Lone Ranger, played Nat "Hawkeye" Cutler, the lead in this series, co-starring with the legendary Lon Chaney Jr as his aboriginal half-brother, Chingachgook. The man who is still considered "the most prolific director in the American sound age", Sam Newfield directed every episode except one (the pilot, directed by colleague Sidney Salkow), while brother Sig Neufeld produced. Sig's son has a music credit in "Hawkeye" and another son is alleged to have appeared in the series.

This was an absolutely great series compared to what else was being churned out of Canada in this era, but somewhat pedestrian compared to the wealth of similar material available in the U.S. at the time. Still, it was shown all over the world, easily accessing U.S. and British Commonwealth television markets and while filmed in B&W, still a pretty good package to view on DVD today.

The outdoors scenes in the program were filmed in picturesque Pickering, Ontario, Canada in the late summer and fall of 1956. There was a movement in 2006 by some dedicated fans of the show to have a plaque erected in the vicinity of the outdoor film lot, as well as a campaign to have a Pickering street renamed "Hawkeye Drive" in commemoration of the show's fiftieth anniversary. Unfortunately, their request has been rejected by Pickering City Council.
