: Please don't shoot me with a virtual reality musket:o) but ever since watching LOTM, I've wondered why DDL took on the role of Hawkeye. Being non-american, why wasn't he intimidated by the fact that "Last of the Mohicans" is considered the first bonafide American novel and therefore its hero the lst fictional AMERICAN hero???....any thoughts?.......ann
Forgive me, but I can't resist this one. Why should an Irishman not play the part of an American? Actually, to all my calculations, the original Natty Bumppo was Dutch.
