: Is it just me, or does Waddington trip? I'm not sure what Duncan was doing - seemed that he was trying to gain a tactical position, but oops! trips, and just decides he should remain where he is.
Hi, Juanita...I don't remember this incident, but you can bet I'll run the movie again & take another look. Anyone else have a thought on this moment?

: I love the book, but I'm afraid I love the film more so (the book doesn't have Schweig on the cover). Soundtrack is incredible! My Japanese students (mostly older adults) really liked it - good thing facial expressions are universal.
What an interesting observation. Certainly Uncas had many scenes where our only clues as to what he was thinking came from his intense expressions. And, of course, we can't forget the dramatic exchange between Cora & Hawkeye in the "I'm looking at you, Miss" scene...talk about expressions!! Or Magua's angry glare throughout...guaranteed to give you shivery nightmares! I can see how it would be possible to understand a great deal about this movie without being fluent in English.
