: What happened 7 years ago this week? Why the theatric premiere of Last of the Mohicans, of course!
Since I only saw this movie for the first time just last fall I have hundreds and hundreds of viewings to see to catch up to some on you, but believe me I'm doing my best. The first time I saw it I came in to where they had just entered the fort. I could tell right away the feelings of Cora and Hawkeye but the under the falls scene really got me thinking. I knew how the movie was going to end of course but my favorite (haunting, painful, hopeful???) scene is of Hawkeye and Uncas running up the cliff to save the girls and Duncan. The music is so beautiful it was painful. and then the cliff scene! Oh yes, I was in great shape to go to work the next day, dying to find out what happened before I turned the tv on. You all of course know where I went immediately after work the next day. Three stores and I found one copy in coconuts music store, I was in a panic. After watching the entire movie, I agree that the music from the first note captures you.
I feel a littler better now.
Happy Monday LOTM'ers, Darla
