5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER GREAT CLASSIC SERIES, 6 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans - The Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
Based on the novels by James Fennimore Cooper, this series was made in Canada and starred John Hart as Hawkeye and Lon Chaney Jr. as his Indian companion and blood brother Chingachgook. John Hart appeared in many small roles on television and had also starred as the Lone Ranger for a time when Clayton Moore had a dispute with the show's producers. Lon Chaney Jr. was a veteran of many Hollywood movies, most notably 'The Wolf Man' (1941), a role which he played four times in the 1940s.
Hawkeye and Chingachgook are fur traders who make it their business to protect the settlers from the marauding Huron Indians, as well as to keep the peace with other Indian tribes and bring to justice unscrupulous white men.
This was an excellent series ranking alongside so many great shows from that era. It only ran for 39 episodes and the complete series is released here by Network.
Great nostalgia, and look out for Canada-born James Doohan (Scotty in 'Star Trek') in a couple of episodes. You may also recognise John Vernon, who also hailed from Canada, in 5 episodes. Incidentally, the opening sequences are taken from the movie 'The Iroquois Trail' (1950) in which George Montgomery starred as Hawkeye.
