In a post below, Vita asks why do we hate Magua....when his children were killed by Col. Munro?? truth, I only hated Magua at the end when he brutally killed one of the heroes....for most of the movie, after hearing Magua explain his reason for being "twisted" I felt in a state of suspension as far as Magua was concerned....knowing the sad history of the native americans, my eyes started to open and I became curious to find out what actually happened to them following the French & Indian War. This is another reason the movie is of above average quality for most Hollywood products. It causes one to think about history's unfolding events. Wouldn't it be wonderful if all the billions of $s spent on movies each yr. could be funneled into those that teach us, move us, cause us to see things in a new way. That rarely happens with the "crap" (excuse my language, but that's what it is) contained in most cinemas today. I believe Harry Truman's words say it all--"the only thing new in the world, is the history we don't know."..........there, I feel better after getting all that out:o)...ann
