: : >>Myrhh, I remember reading that DDL had seen the '36 version as a child and loved it. It was supposedly one of the reasons he really wanted to do the remake. He & Mann both liked it, and were "charged up" about doing a new version.

: Oh, that's soooo neat! I think he did a fab job, if indeed he was inspired by R. Scott. Have you seen the '36 version, Marcia? Randolf could give Daniel a run for the money!!! :)
I rented that version within 2 weeks of seeing Mann's version for the first time, and at that point in time, all it made me do was laugh. I couldn't get over Magua being played by Bruce Cabot or somebody like that. I do remember noticing the similar lines throughout. I'll have to watch it again, in a newly enlightened frame of mind.
Howsever, around THIS house, DDL's version of Hawkeye will always reign supreme, I'm sartain! ;o)
