Rich, thank you for confirming my sanity. Because as far as I can recall the only mention of Brandt is from Uncas at Cameron's Cabin and he mentions the trapping near Joseph Brandt's land. I think Mr. Mann needs to check his tobacco pouch--RJ Reynolds must have slipped something in the chaw to get back at 'The Insider'.
: : I found Mann's comments about Dennis Banks playing Joseph Brandt intriguing. I'm going to have to re-listen to the DVD this weekend because I could have sworn Hawkeye refers to this character as 'Uncle Nokomis' or something similar.
: Yes, Danalee! That jumped out at me instantly! Joseph Brandt? Huh? Same film???? I don't know ... Dennis Banks WAS Ongewasgone in the film ... or, as he's known around here, Uncle Wiscone ... Either it's been too many viewings for MM, or he modeled, in his mind, this character after Brandt.
