There has been some discussion on the board about
the identity of the person called "The Grey Hair,"
and it has been remarked upon that the Col. Monro
of the film didn’t seem to fit the bill. We know
that Michael Mann used cinematic license
to collapse time by placing Joseph Brant at an older
age than he actually would have been during the time
the film was set. Given this I have often wondered if,
when her refers to the Grey Hair, if he wasn’t
making a composite figure out of Monro. Monro was a
heretofore unnoticeable Scottish Colonel relegated to
commanding a wilderness fort who could not have afforded
an address any where near Portman Square. Nor was
he capable of painting the war post red, stirring up the
fearsome Mohawk bringing them to fall upon
Magua’s village.
