: : Then, like you said, at the end it's just Chingachgook and Hawkeye standing there with Cora off to the side and he breaks out into English prayer!!- I imagine it was the audience that was taken into consideration here and our attention spans.

: I agree. It was a very intense moment...Ching..addressing the Gods! If the audience had to read the transaltion at the bottom of the screen, we might have missed DDL putting his hand on Ching.'s shoulder and the eye to eye communication
: regards Myra
I think Ching..itch...cook spoke in his native tongue in front of strangers and only spoke English around people he was comfortable around. i have known foreign people who have done this. i dont know if its a defense mechanism or what. i'm sure thats not what they were thinking of when they did the movie but thats how i always took it.
just my opinion. not asked for, but what board would exist if none of us spoke our ideas?? :-)
