: : Another little bit of minutia that I'd like to get theories on:

: : then drops it with disdain ... and nobody does disdain like
: : our Wes! Is he just checking out the merchandise, or is
: : he thinking, "Ewww, Honey! Split ends!" or what?
: : Count me in on wishing Michael Mann had left in Hawkeye
: : cutting off a lock of Cora's hair -- that would have been a
: : great moment!
: Mary, I've always wondered the same. Is it because she has raven hair like Indian women?? I'd like someone to translate what he says at that moment. Anyone???
: And, yes, I third (or fourth?) that motion...Hawk. cutting off a lock of her hair. Definitely would like to have seen that.
: Myrrh Maybe Magua was attracted to Cora because she had backbone and Alice was so scared but remember his intention was not marriage to either but was murder. He wanted to 'wipe the seed of the Col. from the earth.' He may have thought for a moment she had some value but I think it was only a fleeting moment. Faye
