: : I'm with you ... that line bugs.
: : In fact, for the first 5 or 6 viewings, I thought Hawkeye said "They won't kill you (silly), they'll take you up to Huron country."
: : I agree Cora was a stout-hearted lass. In fact, I think she was innovative enough that even in the context of the times she might have heard that line and said:
: : "Whoa ... IF they don't kill me? Did you say IF THEY DON'T KILL ME? Stand aside, Poe. Hey, Cora! You, me, waterfall ... hit it."
I would be stripping down to my chemise and jumping right after DDL. In fact, I probably would push DDL aside and hang on to Uncas' shirt as I jumped. That's how badly I would try to escape from there. I believe Cora would have the same desire if the film played out the way I would have liked (sigh)...Lynne
