: : Hey Pat,
: : What a blast. Haven't we all pondered what might have became of our LOTM friends, Magua, Ching, Hawkeye and Cora? Although you may be wish'n for a real, honest to goodness sequel worthy of Coopers orignal characters, I have a confession to make.
: : After about the 20th time I watched the movie, I got inspired to write a silly, tongue-in-cheek short story relating Cora's perceptions of their amazing adventure. For some reason, I never finished my little satire. However, I did get far enough along in my fantasy to realize that the the logical focus of a sequel would, of course, be Duncas. Say it like this..."Doooooooncas".
: : Duncas.......the nerdy, albeit devastingly handsome offspring of Cora and Hawkeye. Duncas. Named for Duncan and Uncas, the dead heroes of our beloved film. Hence, the nerdiness and good looks. (Naturally, I want Eric Schweig in the sequel as Duncas) .His full name: Duncas Cora Munroe Poe. According to Hawkeye, (according to me) " any man would be proud to be named for Cora, she's stronger than ten men, and she is sure as heck stronger than Alice!"
: : OK, guys, you get the drift. Not a exactly a literary classic, but I thought it had possibilites. On second thought........:)
: : It's been awhile since I visited Mohicanland. So I just want to say a great big hello to everyone! And I sure hope Wes Studi calls Elaine and Rich. What a great interview that could be.
: : Way to go, Pat!!!
: : Kathy S
: With all due respect, I could never stand silently by when someone wants Eric Schweig play a character (1) named "Duncas" (AAAAACCCCKKK) and (2) play anything even slightly, the tiniest weeniest bit nerdy. No way. Uh-huh. Don't see it -- can't support it -- won't allow it. Sorry!
Hi Sarah, you make a good point! I was just being selfish.
