Right, Elaine, we were in pre-school!!!
Actually, this was my first exposure to Cooper. I ended up selecting LOTM for my American Literature project at college (darn) several years later. I did a paper on 'Natty Bumpo', Hawkeye. Lit and History always being favorite subjects of mine I believe I received an A. Masterpiece Theatre has effectively introduced a wealth of literature to several generations. I've enjoyed many of their productions. Danalee
: : 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.

: Hi Danalee,
: Yes - I remember it! (We were only 2 or 3 years old then, right?)
: It is vague to me too & I'm sure it wouldn't compare too favorably with Mann's creation, but it was very impressive at the time!
