I have no idea why, but The Last of the Mohicans premiered in France, not the United States, on the 26th of August, 1992. The US premiere came on the 25th of September.
I credit this film (I’ve never read the book the whole way through) with a lot of my interests now. Of course back then you couldn’t just jump on the internet and learn stuff and find similar stories, but I tried my best!
I have a few books I recommend quite often, that are set in the same location and time period as this film.
And as a bonus: behind the scenes on the film set. What dorks!
