THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS (Theatrical Release USA 1920)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

The Last of the Mohicans—silent film—is a 1920 remake of the movie, Leather Stocking (1909). The 1920 version is hard to follow and not very clear in its storyline. It can serve as an academic study of the silent film productions of this era or as a comparison of how motion picture progressed by studying the remakes of this story from 1909 to 1920 to include The Last of the Mohicans (1911)


Storyline

The last two Mohicans and their friend, Natty Bumppo, endeavor to rescue two girls who are trying to find their father.

No. Watch the 1993 remake The Last of the Mohicans with Daniel Day-Lewis instead.
