: I did post a message that got lost concerning what exactly happened the night of Hawkeye's and Cora's first kiss. I was also confused about the time frame since one scene they are holding each other and the other scene is Hawkeye being arrested. My question was did it happen the same night and my other question was do you think they consumated their passion? My husband says no since it was 1757 and Cora being a well-bred lady would not go all the way and I say they did since it was obvious they were HOT for each other, there was a war going on, and who knows if they would be alive the next day. Also when they first started kissing her hair was done up and in the final scene of them holding each other her hair was loose and she looked very contented. I know this scene was left to the viewer's imagination but I would love to know what your thoughts are on it. It is such an understated passionate encounter and yet so obvious how much they wanted each other.
: I really love this web site and reading all the comments from everyone and it has helped me see this movie through different eyes each time I view it..I also sent away for the book today..Lynne
Lynne...at first i thought no, they did not do the dead... would cora give herself to this man that she hardly knows no matter what she feels for him? that would be going against everything she has ever been taught. but then again she is feeling things and seeing things that she never has before and it feels right. what is happing to her is so overwelming (sp?) whould she even stop to think, hey is this what i should do?
you know that in the script uncas and alice have sex in the cave sceen...you should read it because it revels (sp) alot about what is going on between them.
