One of the earliest adaptations of The Last of the Mohicans is also a classic of the American cinema from 1920, directed by Clarence Brown and Maurice Tourneur and adapted by Robert Dillon. James Fenimore Cooper’s 1757 best-selling historical novel, set during the French and Indian War, tells the story of two English sisters who encounter danger in the colonial American frontier around their father’s fort. Considered an American masterpiece, this silent film will feature live accompaniment by noted American musician Dennis James who played a pivotal role in the international revival of silent cinema using period-authentic live performance on piano, organ, and other instruments. The film has recently been restored digitally by the George Eastman Museum in Rochester. (Clarence Brown and Maurice Tourneur, 1920, 73 minutes)
