: Hi, Eric...this is one more place where I feel Hawkeye demonstrated he was in complete charge of the situation. And you are right, a "gentleman" of the day probably would not have acted that way. Which is why, I think, Cora first looks flustered, then smiles back at him. BTW, to me this is the pivotal scene in the film, where their relationship is defined. It is as though Hawkeye asks, Cora answers, and he leaves there smiling to himself because he knows it is decided...they belong to each other.
I agree with your interpretation of the "stare-down" scene, Marcia. BTW, thanks for your very level-headed, sensible response to my "hasn't DJL gone Hollywood" post a few days back. Never expected that post to trigger the exchanges it did however.
To me the most mesmerizing aspect of the movie is the soundtrack. Just have to get that CD.
Sincere thanks once again, & I agree that it was presumptuous of me to assume Ms. Adjani was the offended party. We just don't know.
