Madeleine Stowe appears here as Hetty Hutter in one of her very first film roles. This film was the follow-up television movie to Last of the Mohicans (1977). Coincidentally, she would go on to star as Cora Munro along with Daniel Day-Lewis in the big screen film, The Last of the Mohicans (1992), which finds her at the peak of her popularity. See more »

Deerslayer is one of Schick Sunn Classics and ranks high to me
29 March 2003 | by ABombSee all my reviews

I strongly believe that Sunn Schick Productions did posterity a great service. This film and Legend of Sleepy Hollow are only two of the many films they did in the 1970's. Do you remember the Life & Times of Grizzly Adams ? They made that too.

This film mantains it's accuracy by the fact that you learn and not just see SDFX hype. This is truly a classic movie about the early America era and I would recommend anyone watch it. I would rank this and all the Sunn Schick films a 10++ See it whenever you can get a copy.
