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.

3.0 out of 5 stars High Adventure on the Northwest Frontier July 26, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

It was ok. Something different. Better than half the garbage you get on TV here in Ausy. Nothing to write home to mum about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but not outstanding August 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
