Don't know which LAST OF THE MOHICANS you are referring to, but Maurice
directed one shortly after THE BIRTH OF A NATION appeared.  I just wanted to
make sure you
knew about the silent version, which is I believe available on video (it was
on laserdisc at least).  It's a
fascinating, underexamined film, I think.
