Description by

The untamed wilderness of colonial America hides dark mysteries and dangerous secrets. Valiant woodsman Deerslayer and his fiercely loyal friend, Chingachgook (a bare-chested Bela Lugosi), struggle frantically to keep an uneasy peace between white settlers and the native tribes. The heroic scouts - and those close to them - are caught between the settlers' guns and the Indians' deadly arrows. When Chingachgook's true love is kidnapped by a renegade brave, he and Deerslayer embark on a perilous quest to rescue the lovely maiden.

This is the second silent film version of James Fenimore Cooper's The Deerslayer, the first having been filmed in the U.S. in 1913. This German version, released in 1920, features Bela Lugosi eleven years before his career-defining performance as the title character in Universal's Dracula (1931).
