: I certainly agree with you about your above statement concerning this scene. It was the asking and answering of their eyes that so ignites this scene for me. And I feel as you do, that Hawkeye was in full control (with her BLESSINGS!!!)
Judy, I agree here completely...it was definitely "with her blessings" as they are both strong people.
:from the moment he started that "earth moving" stroll through the fort looking for her then taking her hand to "lead" her to THE KISS!
Yes, though they were each looking for the other, Cora waits for him to reach for her, and then follows his lead. The stuff dreams are made of!!
: I also think that the definitive character of Hawkeye in this movie allows him the "stare in public" as meaning no disrespect
: to Cora, rather, a compliment. Had this been Duncan, raised as a proper English gentleman, staring at Cora in such a manner, it would have indeed been disrespectful for the era.
Exactly so. The rules were different in the colonies, and Cora realized it long before Duncan did.
:Remember how Cora looks at Duncan when they are sitting having tea at the Patroons home when he asks her to "consider this"....she is offended and is ready to tell him so until he amends his statement to "please consider this". She is no wilting violet...
: which makes the attraction to this very strong man, Hawkeye, even more appealing to us I think.
Yes, Cora & Hawkeye are so completely suited to each other...a match made in Heaven, as it were.
: What an actor this man truly is as far as I am concerned.
You are so right! His range is remarkable, as I've said many times. Shucks...does this mean I have to contend with YOU as well as Dr. Mary in my battle to reach my rightful place at Hawkeye's side?? Oh, well. Guess I'll have to rely on brute strength to win the day for me!
Hey, Judy...if you come to The Gathering next June, I'll letcha lie down on the hard red dirt where DDL sunbathed! hehe! What an adventcha!
