Hawkeye And The Last Of The Mohicans
- 2 Seasons
This television series, starring John Hart and veteran character actor Lon Chaney, Jr., follows the adventures of Nat 'Hawkeye' Cutler and his stoic, intrepid Native American ally, Chingachgook in the Old West. The series received a great deal of positive reviews upon its initial release, primarily due to the acting and the more realistic conception and execution of the Wild West. The series, unlike a lot of it's progenitors, such as Roy Rogers or the Lone Ranger, depicted the harshness, brutality and general air of malaise and despondency that came with a life of hard labor and constant traveling. The series was based upon the book The Last of the Mohicans, by James F. Cooper.
