"Into the Wilderness", an historical fiction based upon James Fenimore Cooper's LOTM, revisits 18th century New York through Donati's creation, Hawkeye's son Nathaniel, and an educated Englishwoman, Elizabeth Middleton.

Elizabeth Middleton travels from England to upstate New York in 1792 to become schoolmistress for the local children. Upon her arrival at her father's NY property, she discovers his motive for bringing her to America was not to teach, but to find her a husband. His choice? ... the respected physician Richard Todd. Elizabeth has no intention to marry at all, let alone marry Dr. Todd, yet she finds herself attracted to backwoodsman Nathaniel Bonner, son of Dan'l "Hawkeye" Bonner. Nathaniel's connection to the Mohicans is strong; he considers Hawkeye's adoptive father, Chingachgook, his own grandfather, and his own deceased wife was a Mahican woman.

Jack Hawkins, Michael Caine
Seeing this film on the big screen in 1964 caused me to fall in love with my first movie soundtrack ... since that time, a stirring score has been nearly a must in my favorite films! Wonderfully done, historical epic about a band of 100 British regulars guarding a river crossing near a mission station in 1879 South Africa. 4000 Zulu warriors surround and attack the mission. The results will astound you!


For shear historical accuracy, this 4-hour mini-series has few peers. Simultaneously told from the differing viewpoints of two women ... Libby Custer, the General's wife, and Kate Bighead, A Cheyenne observer ... this film covers the life & times of General George Armstrong Custer from his post-Civil War days through the disaster at  Little Bighorn. The re-enactment of the 7th Cavalry's journey from Fort Abraham Lincoln to the initial charge of Major Reno's battalion on the unsuspecting Sioux & Cheyenne village on the Little Bighorn river will make you a virtual eye-witness participant!
Stars Gary Cole, Rosanna Arquette, Rodney Grant, Floyd Red Crow Westerman, and Ed Blatchford (LOTM's Captain Jack Winthrop)
