Hi all

I'm pretty new to this site, but I am really enjoying all of it and of course reading all the messages. I've watched the movie many, many times but reading these messages has made me realise there's still things I've missed in the movie. My question, is was there a love scene between the 'gorgeous, handsome, kissable....(sorry my mind was wondering off there for a minute!) Uncas and Alice?'. I read the interviews done with Eric Sweig (thanks Rich for pointing me in the right direction!) and he implied there was some sort of love scene cut out, and then I read parts of the script for the scenes under the falls and there it is!.
Any thoughts as to why it was cut?. I'm thinking they didn't want 2 love stories going on, just incase the fans liked the Uncas & Alice story(even though tragic!!) more than Hawkeye & Cora.
Was anyone else really shocked the first time they watched the movie that Uncas was killed off?. The first time I watched it I was so,so disappointed in the ending. Now though I apreciate every other scene he is in!!.
Bye all for now.
