Does anyone else remember the BBC/Masterpiece Theatre production from 1971/72? [I'm dating myself!] I remember being impressed with that LOTM production although I haven't seen it since and can't really compare it to 'our favorite' movie. I looked at a cast list from the BBC production and none of the names are even vaguely familiar now, and after living in Scotland and Australia back in the seventies I don't recall them being household names then, either.

: For those interested in the history of how Hawkeye, Cora and Alice have effected the image of the American heroes and heroines, check out this article - Cooper on Film, The Evolvement of Cooper's Characters, Plots, and Themes in the Western Film by Edward Harris. It's a kind of modern condensation of Henry Nash Smith's book, but interesting all the same. When you open the link, click on the image of the film to open the article.
