Sorry to report no road signs Mohican-related sighted on the road to Wellpinit, but as soon as I got back I plopped the VHS in the machine again and viewed LOTM for the umpteenth time. I noticed the following, and hope you folks will comment. Prior to being under the falls, Alice's hair hangs straight down in disarray. When Uncas grabs her from stepping out and giving their presence away her hair is the same. Immediately following their 'moment'when the Huron's enter the cave we see Cora and Alice confronted by Magua. Alice is sporting two braids, one on either side of her face. She carries those braids with her to the death. Likewise, I noticed after running the tape slow several times, Uncas is sporting two slender braids, one behind each ear, following his 'moment with Alice. Perhaps some affectionate mutual grooming? Did Uncas perhaps want to leave his mark on 'his' woman? God, I hope the Director's cut gives us some substance. Thanks.
