"The Last of the Mohicans" Movie 1936: Eagle Scout Trainer

Recommended Posts

I found this odd bit of history and thought I would share it.


This film starred Randolph Scott and was shot in 1936.  When they did location shooting in Sherwood Forest, CA, the studio hired and Eagle Scout to show the actors playing Indians how to start a fire with flint and steel.  The link below is to a source for this information.


Just an interesting bit of trivia.
