Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans
In New York’s Hudson Valley during the 1750s, woodsman, trapper and US cavalry scout Nat ‘Hawkeye’ Cutler (John Hart) and his Mohican friend, Chingachgook (Lon Chaney Jr.), are more than simply friends; they are blood brothers, whose bond of loyalty endures amid hard times, adventure and the cycles of hatred and violence that characterise the tough life of the northern frontier settlements. Wherever they can, Hawkeye and Chingachgook bravely endeavour to bring wrongdoers to justice and encourage harmony and understanding.
Loosely based on James Fenimore Cooper’s classic novel and featuring veteran Western star (and sometime Lone Ranger) John Hart, Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans was among the first television Western series to attempt a realistic, less stereotypical portrayal of its Old West setting; Hawkeye and Chingachgook encounter hardened bigots and callous fortune-seekers among the white men, as well as treacherous characters among the Native American tribes. The series, the first ever American-Canadian television project, was directed by Sam Newfield and filmed in Canada, receiving its first UK television screening in 1957. This complete-series release brings together every episode.
