Time Event
1920 Movie #1: "The Last Of the Mohicans"

The Last of the Mohicans
Associated Producers Inc, USA, 1920
Directed by Clarence Brown and Maurice Tourneur
Scenario by Robert A. Dillon

Based on the novel by James Fenimore Cooper

And so we move onward, into the past, to 1920. And now I'm back on more familiar ground, review-wise. For we see before us another prime example of melodrama, though melodrama of literary pedigree. James Fenimore Cooper's books about the American frontier in the 18th century (which is to say, upstate New York) are held to be true American classics. Cooper's one of the earliest literary lights of the USA, at least by general reckoning. And what did he write? Adventure stories! Take that, metaphor and allegory!
