: Hello!

: Have just recently discovered this wonderful site and have spent countless hours delving into all the cyber-gems present here. If only some of my other favorite films had Websites half as good as this one..

: LOTM is indeed one of my favorite films, especially since it introduced me to such impressive {if lesser known to US audiences} actors like Steven Waddington, Jodhi May and Pete Posthelwaite {yes, Pete's 20 seconds of glory here caught my eye, :)} LOTM's deft assembly of adventure, romance, tragedy and drama always serves as a welcome respite from the more-often-than-not brain dead offerings from Hollywood.

: With all the goodies availble at this site, it took me a while to get to the Message boards and even longer to get thru the bulk of them but it was well worth the time. Clearly you folks have developed a very solid online community here and I'm a bit tentative as a newcomer to dip my toe in but here it goes..

: I'm glad to see that some posts here confirmed that there was indeed a BBC LOTM series. I belive I saw it run on my local PBS station, oh...I can't recall when. Does anyone know if the series is availible on tape? Being but a lad when I saw it, I can recall next to nothing about the cast or production, aside from the typical BBC "film the exteriors, tape the interiors" method. Would be interested to here opinions on it from anyone who has seen it.

: Sheesh, I've rambled on like a ranker whose broken into the regimental rum stocks! Well, let me just say thanks to the authors of this site for their brilliant work and my good wishes to all those LOTM devotees here. I hope to return often.

: Best Wishes

: Bruce


Thank you for your post and comments. They are MUCH appreciated!
Glad you've enjoyed browsing around our site. Please do stick around and continue to post your thoughts on the board. "Mohicanland" has many interesting citizens, traders, traitors, crises, and fun. Jump right in!

As for the BBC production of "The Last of the Mohicans"; I remember it as having been very well done (though I qualify that with the awareness that if I saw it today ...???). I've sent an e-mail to BBC's info centre and hopefully will have a reply to post. It would be nice to see it again. It, along with reading Cooper's novel, left me hoping that someone would someday produce a worthy film adaptation of the classic tale. In '92, that happened. Indebted to Michael Mann for that!

Thanks again and we look forward to hearing more from you.
