: Cooper's sequel to Last of the Mohicans was "The Pathfinder" which I have heard was made into a movie with Kevin Dillon as Hawkeye. Has anyone seen this yet?
: Please, Please !! Stay very far away from this movie(you notice I didn't call it a film) IT SUCKS!! Even with Russell Means playing "Arrowhead" . Graham Greene plays "Chingahgook" Need I say FAT! and Kevin Dillon as "Hawkeye/Pathfinder" as totally terrible. It's just another ripoff. This is the worst adaptation of one of Cooper's books I have ever seen.
On another note, I was discussing LOTM with some friends at Prickett's Fort a few weeks ago and the one big laugh we had was when someone mentioned Haweye's big leap during the elk hunt. If he hadn't been wearing the Nike moccasins he would surely have landed on that part of his anatomy that Connie wants to powder! Moccasins are great but on wet ground or leaves they can be as slippery as having grease on your feet.
