Watered down and distilled Leatherstocking Tale
5 April 2015 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

George Montgomery and Brenda Marshall star in The Iroquois Trail which is taken and a quite watered down version of James Fenimore Cooper's Last Of The Mohicans. But Cooper fans will not see any of Cooper's ideas about the American Indian as noble savage here not his more daring theme of his time about interracial love. George Montgomery as Hawkeye and his faithful Indian companion Monte Blue are little more than a colonial version of The Lone Ranger and Tonto.

That being said there is a lot of action to satisfy any action film fan in this story set during the French and Indian War. Montgomery and Blue are on the trail of two traitorous skunks who shot his younger brother Don Garner who was riding dispatch for British commander Sir William Johnson played here by Paul Cavanaugh.

This was Brenda Marshall's last feature film as she settled into the role of being Mrs. William Holden raising their sons.

Sheldon Leonard is barely recognizable with shaved head and dialog that is Hollywood monosyllabic for Indian characters. In this case the better not to get his most urban speech pattern.

If you're an action fan you'll like this. But lovers of James Fenimore Cooper beware.
