THE SCRIPT ... The Complete Collection of Scenes From the Film
This section of the site contains the March 1991 revised script from THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS in its entirety. You will notice that there are distinct changes, in spots, from what appeared in the released film. It should, though, clear up
the sporadic lack of clarity and enable you to better decipher the dialogue, along with providing to you some insight into what the film-makers may have had in mind. To browse this section, keep in mind it is set up as a book ... each scene has a link to
the next. To break this pattern, click on the Return To Menu button. That will take you back here. Click the Home Page button to return to the full menu of pages contained within this site.
PLEASE NOTE: All material in this
script that appears in the DVD edition is written in RED! As in the theatrical
release, some of the dialogue and action differ.
Most of these script pages include sound files in the .wav format. Thanks to Bruce Davis for supplying the inspiration and many of the clips! Thanks also to Joy Landry for the additional sounds! Enjoy browsing the script and
you'll find them! Be sure that your browser is JAVA enabled!
To download the sound files, go to LOTM DOWNLOADABLE SOUND FILES.
In addition, two versions of the entire script are available for download; one
is a simple text (.txt) file, the other is a .pdf file ... fully illustrated & in COLOR! Use the "Sound File" link above!
Now that we have completed the entire script, we will be adding - again, over time
(yeah, we know ... a LONG time!) - a new feature. Every scene from the movie that has a corresponding scene in the novel will be linked to a page that contains Cooper's text - condensed as necessary -
as it relates to that scene. The changes and similarities will then become vividly apparent! Keep in mind, the film, in many ways, has Cora & Alice in role reversals ...
