: : After Uncas was killed by Magua and after Alice takes her swan dive over the cliff, the camera pans down to a shot of the rocks below. With these shots, are we supposed to see the bodies of Uncas and Alice lying together on the rocks? My eyesight isn't what is once was, so all I can make out is a flash of white, especially after Alice goes skydiving without the parachute. I've even tried pausing the tape frame by frame, but can't make anything out. As I get older, my eyesight gets poorer, but I'd sure like to know if we're supposed to be seeing something in those shots! Are things any clearer in the DVD version?

: Hi Jeri,
: To my old eyes, it always looked like her white gown and his green shirt down there on the rocks, as if they landed down there quite next to each other, which is I am sure what Michael Mann intended for it to look like.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't make out that shot. It's not a big deal, but it's one of those things that always bugged me. Guess I'll just have to use my imagination and accept that Uncas and Alice are together on the rocks below.
