Tear Jerker: The Last of the Mohicans
Several in the chase scene in the finale. Most notably Uncas dying as his father runs toward him from a distance, just too late, and Alice killing herself to keep from being forced to marry Magua, mere minutes before she would have been rescued. Though, with Uncas dead, she probably had lost the will to live anyway.
