: : : The changes that were made during the filming process are fascinating. For instance, in the last scene the dialogue has Hawkeye actually proposing to Cora. Of course, in the final product their commitment to each other is insinuated rather than spoken.
: : I'm not 100% certain about this but, I believe, the footage used in the theatrical release is that of the actual "proposal" footage, using only rear shots of the speaker. If you watch, it seems as if they ARE talking to one another there at Table Rock.
: Hi Rich,
: Are you saying then that TNT edited LOTM when it was shown a few wks ago?.....if so, I must rent/purchase the video to see what I've missed. The movie ran for at least 2 hrs on TNT -- can you tell me the length of the original release?
The video runs 114 minutes. I think the TNT run was fairly intact; minus a few chops, whacks, and Munro's heart held aloft by everyone's favorite hero, Magua.
The scene at the end, filmed on Table Rock Mountain, is the same as on video. When you next watch, observe Hawkeye & Cora after she kisses him ... it appears they are speaking to one another, but the camera angle is always on the BACK of the "speaker."
