: : Hi Jo, Myrrh, and anyone else who cares to comment,
: : This has always puzzled me. It sounds like Hawkeye addresses Chingachgook as Ongewasgone when they are talking about leaving the fort, but wasn't Ongewasgone the Mohawk who spoke at Cameron's cabin (played by Dennis Banks)? The line to Chingachgook has never made sense to me. Anyone have an interpretation?

: Chris ... That IS Ongewasgone that Hawkeye addresses at the fort, not Chingachgook. Yes, the same fellow who was at CC! GGGGing again???
WHAT!!!!!!!! That settles it! Senility is taking over. After all the hundreds of times I've watched that scene, I still can't believe it. Maybe we're talking about different scenes. Gee, guess I'll just have to watch it again... DVD this time, so I can clearly see the person I'm looking at. Right now, I'm out of luck. Our electricity went off for 2 hours this morning and I'm having trouble getting my TV, cable box, VCR and DVD coordinated and working again. No wonder I'm getting senile. Life was so much simpler when you just turned on the TV (of course, it wasn't nearly as interesting).
