The Last of the Mohicans (1936) is an adventure film starring Randolph Scott, Bruce Cabot, Henry Wilcoxon and Binnie Barnes. The film is based on the novel of the same name by James Fennimore Cooper and directed by George B. Seitz. In 1756, during the Seven Years' War, the British garrison at Fort William Henry at Lake George, New York, is under siege from a combined force of French and Huron troops, led by General Montcalm (William Stack). Alice (Binnie Barnes) and Cora (Heather Angel) seek to join their father, the British Colonel Munro (Hugh Buckler) at the fort, but are betrayed by their Huron guide, Magua. Rescued by the scout Hawkeye (Randolph Scott), they safely reach the fort, but after Munro surrenders to the French Alice and Cora are captured by Magua and the British defector Major Heyward (Henry Wilcoxon). Hawkeye, along with his comrades Chingachgook and Uncas, seek to rescue them.
