Editorial Reviews

Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans was an action series based upon James Fenimore Cooper's classic novel, The Last of the Mohicans. The stories take place in the 1750's during the French and Indian War in the Hudson Valley. The series was filmed almost entirely in Canada from 1957 to 1958 utilizing authentic outdoor settings and carefully observed period detail. The two main characters were Nat "Hawkeye" Cutler, a scout and first of the "long rifles" and his Indian blood brother Chingachgook, the last living member of the Mohican tribe. Together, they fight to protect settlers against the raiding Huron Indians.

Based on James Fennimore Cooper's characters, "Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans" was an adventure series set on the American frontier of the 1750s, which, at the time, meant upstate New York. The titular characters Nat `Hawkeye' Cutler and his Indian blood brother, Chingachgook, the last living member of the Mohican tribe, fight the French, their ruthless Huron Indian allies and various frontier criminal elements while trying to maintain peace between the Americans establishing new settlements in the wilderness and peaceful Indian tribes living in the area.

Hawkeye was played by John Hart, a handsome, athletic, if somewhat bland actor most famous today for stepping into "The Lone Ranger" role when Clayton Moore left the show for a season in a contract dispute. Lon Chaney Jr. might seem a strange choice to play Hawkeye's Indian friend and partner, but the burly actor is actually quite good in the role and Chaney seems to be having a blast playing the character. The last 38 episodes of the series were shot in Ontario, Canada and provide a realistic, rustic backdrop to the proceedings.

The series' outstanding pilot episode was shot in Hollywood with a excellent production values and many top-drawer character actors, such as Michael Ansara and Stacy Harris, filling the cast. Unfortunately, the pilot's promise was not fulfilled in subsequent episodes. Sam Newfield directed all of the remaining episodes with little panache. Newfield directed some of the best "Captain Gallant of the Foreign Legion" shows, so he was perfectly capable of providing exciting entertainment on a limited budget, but the grind of producing so many programs week in and week out seems to have had a detrimental effect on his performance.

Format: DVD
In the wake of Disney's success with the limited series "Davy Crockett," television producers scrambled to develop series using the early American frontier as a backdrop. Series like "The Adventures of Jim Bowie" and "Northwest Passage" (which co-starred Buddy Ebsen from the "Davy Crockett" series) were developed. Disney even returned to the era with another limited series "Swamp Fox," starring Leslie Nielsen. From Canada came "Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans" starring John Hart (who had replaced Clayton Moore as "The Lone Ranger" for a while during a salary dispute) as "Hawkeye" and Lon Chaney, Jr. as "Chingachgook." The original pilot for the series (included on this DVD set) was filmed in Hollywood, but all of the other episodes in this single season show (39 episodes in total) were filmed in Pickering, Ontario, Canada under the auspices of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.

Although the stories are fictional, "Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans" is an entertaining view and the half-hour format works to the series' advantage. Outside of Hart and Chaney and a few American actors in the pilot episode (most notably Michael Ansara), American audiences will probably not recognize many faces among the Canadian casts, save for James "Scotty" Doohan who appears as both a settler and an Indian! Both of Doohan's appearances are included in this set.

This two-DVD set from Timeless Media includes 10 episodes from the series including the pilot episode "Hawkeye's Homecoming" and, while it's unlikely that these episodes have been restored, the episodes are fairly clean looking, free of defects for the most part. There is one episode that is of lesser visual quality and two of the episodes are missing end credits.

The pilot episode of "Hawkeye and the Last of the Mohicans" is quite good and has some recognizable actors (Frank DeKova and Michael Ansara) but once the series was sold and turned over to divers hands, it apparently didn't ever come back up to the high water mark set by the first episode. That isn't to say the series is poor, because it is entertaining but there is nothing outstanding about it either. I don't regret buying the ten episodes because the two DVD set was reasonably priced, and I rather like John Hart as Hawkeye and (especially) Lon Chaney Jr. as Chingachgook. Unfortunately, most of the scripts don't deviate from one another and there is a certain sameness to most of the stories; those scripts that are a little different aren't appreciably different, and most of the ten episodes haven't aged well. The stories are good for a rainy day but they aren't the sort of thing most fans of early television would probably want to re-watch very often.

Format: DVD
This is a video I would never buy, never watch and never, ever review (they just made me post a star-rating). Why would I want to ruin my childhood memories? I now have the perspective of a 62-year-old man and want to remember the program as it was. When I watched the shows in reruns on TV very shortly after the series was filmed in 1957 -- and loved them! -- I was nine or ten. I can still remember things that happened in various episodes to this day. I had a home a few years back in a somewhat mountainous bedroom community of New York City on the Hudson River. Being a physical fitness devotee, whenever I would be out running on a picturesque pathway along the river in the dead of winter, the grey, overcast scenery reminded my exactly of the scenery in Canada where the show was filmed. I would actually hum the theme song to the program as I ran! Shocking to learn that John Hart didn't die until just recently -- in 2009, at 91-- and that Lon Chaney Jr. was such a cigarette addict and a boozer that he died at 67 -- and parts of his body have been preserved to show modern medical students the deleterious effects of both!
