Probably the closest we’ll ever get to seeing Daniel Day-Lewis in an action film, we continue our DDL triple-bill with Michael Mann’s epic historical drama The Last of the Mohicans, which was also Day-Lewis’ first foray in a big-budget Hollywood picture.

Set in 1757 during the French and Indian War, Daniel Day-Lewis plays legendary frontiersman Hawkeye, a white orphaned settler adopted by the last member of a native tribe, who falls in love with a British army officer’s daughter (Madeleine Stowe) after she is kidnapped during an ambush led by the traitorous Magua (played to perfect villainy by Wes Studi). Torn between two cultures, Hawkeye refuses to give up the causes of the Mohicans who raised him, while also fighting to save Cora, who is the set piece in a revenge plot aimed at bringing down her father for his past actions in battle.

As we all know by now, Daniel Day-Lewis is renowned for his in-depth and exhausting preparations before signing on to any film, and Mohicans was no different: For several months before production began, Day-Lewis lived off the land in the Alabama wilderness, built several canoes, learnt to track and skin wild animals, cut firewood with a tomahawk and perfected the use of a 12-pound flintlock gun, which he took everywhere he went, even to a Christmas dinner. To be fair, it’s hard to imagine the film without Day-Lewis running through the forest with his raven mane blowing in the wind as accompanied by a soaring orchestral rendition of Dougie MacLean’s The Gael, all while carrying that gun of course.
