John Paris and Lloyd Chester
9 November 2014 | by kevinolzakSee all my reviews

Set in 1763, second episode "The Threat" begins with Hawkeye and Chingachgook searching for settlers who came all the way from England to Huron territory, held captive to the only trading post nearby, belonging to Jake Flint (John Paris, first of five) and his partner Rafe (Lloyd Chester, first of four). Anyone who chooses to sell their wares in the capitol to the South is threatened with death to Flint's Huron accomplices. Hiram Bass (George Barnes, first of four) takes his wife and son with him, his defiance of Flint resulting in an arrow in his back. Abel Stark (Eric Heath, first of two) explains the situation to Hawkeye, who offers to help the settlers make their way North through friendlier Iroquois country. Trapper Wilcher (Glynne Morris, first of three) is forced to confess their plans to Flint to avoid strangulation by leather, the successful kidnapping of the Bass family forcing Hawkeye and Chingachgook to willingly give themselves up to be sent downstream to certain death by Huron hands. More typical of the series in general, well done on a low budget, allowing the heroes to save the day through good old fashioned fisticuffs. Lon Chaney excelled at physical action, and gets to duke it out on two occasions, while John Hart only gets tough in the water.
