: : did and/or when did alice learn her dad had died?????????????
: Hi Nick,
: I don't believe that anyone actually told Alice that her father had been killed. In the cave under the waterfall, Cora asked Hawkeye to "Say nothing to Alice". That's the last reference made to Munro's death in the movie (at least I think that's the last reference.)
Actually, Jeri & Nick...there is at least one more mention of Colonel Munro at the Huron camp, when Hawkeye is making his plea to the Sachem..."Let the children of the dead Munro go free..." I think if Alice had not figured out by THAT time that daddy lost his heart at Massacre Valley, surely that line would have sunk in...maybe...maybe not, given her state near catatonic of shock. At least, I choose to think she was aware enough to realize that there would be no help coming forth from Papa.
