Well, all this talk of the '36 version of LOTM got me wanting a copy of my own to keep my 1992 version company. I should be getting my own personal copy of the '36 LOTM on VHS this next week sometime. $9.98 from Amazon.com
They also had one with Boris Karlof ! Now I seem to remember that this was discussed or brought up some time ago on the board.
I can't for the life of me imagine that version. You kind of wonder if Hawkeye would have bolts coming out of his neck, or if instead of being shackled as he is led away from the fort, he would be wrapped tightly in linen strips.
: Hey! This morning as I was getting ready to leave the house, I flipped on American Movie Classics, and there was an old black and white movie running...hmmm, Indians, a guy in a coonskin cap, British soldiers...I watched for a bit. Then I heard, "Montcalm is a soldier and a gentleman, not a butcher!"
: HUH?! Wow! This is it! It's the film version that our beloved LOTM was based upon!!!! Yowsah! Kept watching... pretty soon I hear, "Someday I think you and I are going to have a serious disagreement."
: Mama Mia!!!!!!!!! I was SO thrilled! Running in and out of the room between dressing and eating, I caught other familiar snippets: "If that is your idea of justice, then the sooner French guns blow the English out of America the better it will be for the colonials!"
: He-heeee!!! This is too much!
: And the Courier scene is so very similar!!! Now that I know this, I'm going out to rent the '36 version of Last of the Mohicans!!!!
: And Randolph Scott looks pretty darn good as Hawkeye too!!!
: I'm tickled pink!!!
