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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hawkeye! January 31, 2014
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!
