The Last of the Mohicans

Other mistake: On the way to fort Henry Magua starts his attack by hitting a soldier with his axe. Before being hit the soldier smiles into the camera (seen through Magua's eyes), but doesn't even look when he is being hit, seen from the side. (00:17:10)


Other mistake: As they are leaving the fort, during the point of view shot of Cora, on the left hand side of the screen, a black gas canister can be seen.

Other mistake: In the final scene, just after the death of Magua, you can hear a small dog (perhaps one owned by a cast, or crew member, but unlikely to be a breed out in the wilderness away from human shelter) barking. (01:46:20)

Suggested correction: Laughable. There is no audible barking of a dog.

Other mistake: When Hawkeye, Uncas, and Chingachgook jumped through the waterfall, their gunpowder was, according to Hawkeye, soaking wet. When escaping from the Huron camp, Hawkeye suddenly has dry powder to put the burning British officer out of his misery. Nowhere do we see our three heroes get dry powder. And no, sodden gunpowder can't be dried out and reused.

Visible crew/equipment: In the hunting scene at the beginning, you can see a man with a red cap on the right side of the screen, above the running deer. (00:03:20)

Cora Munro: Yes! Go ahead.
Duncan: What the bloody hell plan is this?
Cora Munro: I want you to go.
Hawkeye: If we go, there's a chance there won't be a fight. There's no powder. If we don't go in that, there's no chance. None! Do you understand?
Duncan: Coward.

Question: What happened to the other Redcoats who were in the canoes during the escape from the ambush? By the time they send the canoes over the waterfall and retreat to the cave, only the six of them are left.

Answer: Major Hayward is supporting one of the soldiers as they enter the cave. After they make their way down the rocks, he puts the soldier down on the ground. The other soldier appears to be killed by one of Magua's gang.
