: : Yes, me too, and when I figured it out....whoooooo man! What a thrill. THAT is something I wanted more of!!! He was whispering something in her ear, folks, no doubt about it! Does the whispering come through clearer on the DVD?
: I couldn't hear it on MINE, but then we already know I had terrible sound problems to contend with. Anyone else hear him whispering? I always figured he was just trying to "shush" her and keep her still, so as not to give the group away to the Ottawa and two Francais.
: : : But the prettiest shot on the dvd to me is when they are running to the river through the smoke of battle...very nice image, doncha think?
: : You mean, when they come down the little red embankment and Hawkeye yells "Numsetuk" as he gestures toward the canoes waiting at water's edge???? I wanna know what the prettiest shot on the DVD is!!! I wanna know!!
: The shot I was speaking of is right after Hawkeye kills Cora's attacker (four times!) and grabs her. Chingachgook helps Alice up off the ground, and they all head towards the river through the smoke. It's really a nice shot of them disappearing into the smoke. And as Chingachgook is helping Alice up, you can see Uncas in the distance turning around to look for them before they all skedaddle.
: : What about the shot I've heard tell of, of the captives at sunset or something? A new shot, it was...
: It's a brief shot of them being hauled along with the sunset in the sky behind them. Just a very nice visual.
: I guess some of the good things about the dvd HAVE managed to stick in my mind. I want my new player so I can reassess. And Myrrh, I had to leave a $200 deposit, too, but they gave it right back when I returned the player. If you have a credit card, they'll take that in lieu of cash, then issue an immediate credit when you come back.
Not only on my VHS version, is Uncas in the background; ahead of the group; but he ran in front of the camera to get there (a nice touch of directing, I always thought, as so few actors run in front of the camera.....)Is this part still in the DVD version???
Then of course, Uncas gets in the front of the canoe; only to be replaced by Hawkeye.....
