The Last of the Mohicans …

“I will find you.”

Beginning work on The Last of the Mohicans page. Right now I’m inserting quotes from the movie – and there are several good ones.  There’s many excellent  images also.

One way you can tell if a  movie / writing / is ‘Inspired’ work – is by the number of memorable quotes or unique expressions that come out of it. Star Wars, for instance, had several (“Use the Force Luke”, “May the Force be with you” … several others – that have almost become household expressions. Shakespeare has to be the outstanding example of inspired writing …  so whoever wrote that stuff was a genius to be sure.

As I mentioned before, one notable theme that surrounds nearly every movie here is the conflict between the money brokers and the artist (Director). Even Michael Mann had his issues due to reports that he was taking too long and that he often reshot scenes as many as 20 times. Thus the company sent someone down to (literally) look over Mann’s shoulder during shooting and urge him to not be so particular. Ultimately, (as in most cases) the movie made 72 million dollars –  a lot of loot in 1992. It was a great success.

I continue to refine, edit, update and change all my pages: Gunfight at the OK Corral; Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid … so if you check back on occasion you will see new content, etc. This will ALWAYS be the case. These Pages are never finished – as I find more and more material as I go along.

… onward !
