Danalee reporting in after a family viewing of the new DVD. On a positive note I found the colors more brilliant and my favorite scene of Uncas and Alice under the waterfall easier to view because the contrast of light and dark was better balanced--more detail could be seen. Negatives? The downplayed score, the rough edit spots and NO additional Alice and Uncas scenes. Hubby liked the extra battle scenes; but I was left, as others were, wondering why did Mann even bother? Even my least favorite scene at the end of the movie (when the cameras pan the rock following the cliff fight) and which I used to find nonsensical, was excised and the resulting rough edit disappointing. However, it is Thanksgiving and I'm still thankful for the movie--I'll just stick with the VHS version unless I want to repeatedly watch Alice and Uncas under the falls; then I'll put the DVD in and go bonkers. LOTM you're still my favorite film--love ya! Danalee

: Now I understand they have substituted a DIFFERENT shot of Hawkeye walking through the fort looking for Cora (just before their love scene)?? What in THE heck??! The more I hear, the more outraged I am. I'm thinking of writing a letter of protest or complaint.
