: : Hey all!!
: : I happened to come across the website a couple of weeks ago and I must say that I'm very impressed!! Well done to the web authors!!
: : I haven't had a chance to read all the comments but I do have a question one of you all-knowing mohican land people might be able to answer. It's actually such a minor little detail but I'm curious about the braid in Alice's hair after the waterfall scene. It wasn't there before her interlude with Uncas and though that whole section was cut out of the movie I still wonder about its significance. Maybe it signified their relationship? I'm just wondering what your take is on it. Hopefully, the DVD version will clarify. I'm having a great time exploring this site and I LOVE the music musings!!

: Hi Tammy --
: Welcome to the site! Glad you could join us. I too noticed the braid, but only recently. I'm one of the one's who is a bigger fan of the Uncas-Alice relationship than the Cora-Hawkeye relationship, so I find that hair style fascinating (have you seen the way Uncas holds Alice's arm and watches her as they approach the Fort in the dark? I love that little touch!). Anyway, essentially, the hairdo came along when he braided his the same way, so there is something in the timing of it. MY theory is that we won't see it in the DVD because I can't image a scene of him braiding her hair or her braiding her hair to match his, but that it was some behind-the-scenes thing, sort of like reading between the lines of a good book. BUT, maybe I'll be proved wrong in a few days time and we WILL get to see what happened, but I just don't expect it.
: Also, thanks very much for the comment on the Musical Musings. I hope it helps your Viewing Pleasure! :>)

Am glad you enjoy the site; good to read your post....
However, Miss Sarah MM....(Music M.)(totally great pages!) the braid on Uncas was there before the cave scene, and quite obviously, in the scene when they came upon Cameron's cabin after the war party...when Uncas reaches down to touch Alexandra, his braid is in full view....
But Sarah is right about previous posts; (of which have eluded me so far...will find them eventually) that Alice's braid was some kind of solidarity between her and Uncas after the cave.
Or, it could be; as the makeup people and I assume, this means the hairdressing people, left the set before the movie was completed; maybe they just plopped the wrong hair style on her...
but that is not as romantic...I vote for Sarah's view of it!
