: >>Yes, very impressive for a man of his *comparitive* age. And also a great VOICE.
: : I took a lot of ribbing about Magua. In fact, someone brought me another drink. Thought I needed it if I thought Magua was a sweetie. Sheesh. Appreciating Magua is like learning to appreciate a fine vintage wine. It's an acquired tase! LOL.
: >>Well, I can't say as I ever thought of him as a "sweetie!" ;o) I mean, to me, Magua's heart is twisted, and he's a villain, through and through. But as for sheer animal magnetism, he has it in spades, and I would really love to meet Wes Studi. I think HE would be a very interesting person.
: Having said all of the above, though...it's Hawkeye for me, all the way. He's got it ALL, in my book, and will remain my favorite fantasy man forever, I'm sure. And all jokes about the falling down scene aside...my favorite image will always be the one of him racing through the tall grass to rescue Cora. It's what the whole movie is about, to me.
That scene in the movie told the story in a nutshell...a man doing everything in his power, overcoming every danger and obstacle to save and protect the woman he loves. There's nothing more powerful. P.S. I guess using the term 'sweetie' is definetely not for the character of Magua, but more for the man himself and 'sheer animal magnetism' describes him to a 'T'.
