" The thing to remember is that Mann did not set out to write a history piece, its set against a historical backdrop, but that is where it ends.."
I agree. I take the film adaptation of LOTM for what it is ... entertainment, not a documentary. Yet, these pursuits we engage in serve a purpose. Witness the amount of historical info & discussion that arose from this one thread.
" The fact is that ONLY Mann can give us the answers, for only he knows what he had in mind [wouldnt it be interesting to ask him?]..."
It sure would! We're working on it, too.
" As intriguing a possibility it is, I think way too much is being read into the Munro/Magua storyline.
: Knowing the Hollywood process & mind thought, its not as complex as we're trying to make it out to be."
Not to worry. We're really not trying to complicate the story line! This is somewhat of a sport around here. It serves us well in the end ... I think.
Besides, some of us suffer from a touch of Cooperism. It's our nature to 'play' with these characters!
