Product Description

Amazon.ca

After they first worked together on the 1966 film This Property Is Condemned, director Sydney Pollack and Robert Redford continued their long-lasting collaboration with this 1972 drama set during the mid-1800s, about one man's rugged effort to shed the burden of civilization and learn to survive in the wilderness of the Rocky Mountains. Will Geer is perfectly cast as the seasoned trapper who teaches Jeremiah Johnson (Redford) how to survive against harsh winters, close encounters with grizzly bears, and hostile Crow Indians. In the course of his adventure, Johnson marries the daughter of a Flathead Indian chief, forms a makeshift family, and ultimately assumes a mythic place in Rocky Mountain folklore. Shot entirely on location in Utah, the film boasts an abundance of breathtaking widescreen scenery, and the story (despite a PG rating) doesn't flinch from the brutality of the wilderness. In addition to the original theatrical trailer, remastered Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack, and informative production notes, the DVD also includes The Saga of Jeremiah Johnson, a promotional documentary on the making of the film. --Jeff Shannon

Format:DVD
He was a big man, maybe even growing in physical stature with the growth of his myth; deadly with his Bowie knife and his gun alike. He'd been a fighter in the U.S.-Mexican war, but left the lowland's ways behind in favor of a mountain man's: the lonesome hunt, the wild outdoors, and the confrontation with nature rather than his fellow men. And he came to be known as "Crow Killer" and "Liver Eating Johns(t)on" when he took war to the Crow nation after they killed his wife.
Based on Raymond Thorp/Robert Bunker's "Crow Killer" and Vardis Fisher's "Mountain Man" and scripted by John Milius and Edward Anhalt - with input from frequent Redford/Pollack cooperator David Rayfiel - Sydney Pollack's and Robert Redford's 1972 movie loosely traces the mythical hunter's legend, opening with his arrival at the fort where he buys his first horse and gun. "Ride due west as the sun sets. Turn left at the Rocky Mountains," is a trader's goodnatured answer to Johnson's naive inquiry where to find "bear, beaver and other critters worth cash money when skinned." All too soon, he finds that his lowland skills no longer do him any good. He almost starves in the freezing mountainous winter before being taken in by old "griz" hunter Bear Claw Chris Lapp (Will Geer in a stand-out role - his and Redford's deadpan exchanges alone make this movie worth its price).
Setting out on his own again the following year Johnson fares better, even gaining the respect of a Crow warrior prosaically named Paints His Shirt Red (Joaquin Martinez), the first person he encountered in the mountains.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Liver Eating" Johnson's story April 15 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Although highly fictionalized, this is the story of a real Mountain Man, whose nom-de-plume was "Liver Eating" Johnson--so-called because he habitually ate the livers of the Crow Indians he killed in his vendetta against them.

I was surprised by the casting of Redford as Johnson--almost as ridiculous as casting Alan Ladd as Jim Bowie in the old movie, The Iron Mistress, and for the same reason: Alan Ladd was a shrimp. Bowie was well over six feet tall in his stocking feet; some say six foot five.

But Redford came through with flying colors, although the screen writers left out many fascinating details of Johnson's (originally Johnston) exciting life. The movie was filmed in the wilds of Utah, and filming began before the script was finished. Weather was a huge problem, as well, and the studio never spent enough money and effort promoting it, but still it did very well at the box-office, eventually.

Driving through Montana and northern Wyoming several years ago, we passed Crazy Woman Mountain, which I think was probably named after Mrs. Morgan (in the story), whose family was killed by Crows (as was Johnson's); hence his killing spree.

This is a movie well worth seeing. It is not only entertaining, but the Utah scenery is delightful, and there is even a little insight into the actual hardships of the real Mountain Men of the Rockies, Sierras, Cascades and Blue Mountains of the West.

5.0 out of 5 stars SOME SAY HE WILL NEVER DIE Feb. 1 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
A classic film, JEREMIAH JOHNSON starring Robert Redford continues to be an enduring statement about survival, priorities and the lasting beauty of a lost western frontier. Based on the vintage western book Mountain Man by Vardis Fisher.
Johnson moves west to escape a war-filled past and to find what he hopes will be a better lifestyle. Instead he discovers himself and realizes he doesn't know.
Befriended by Bear Claw Grislap, a seasoned mountain man played wonderfully by Wil Geer, Johnson is trained and prepared for what will be an arduous life. When Crow warriors cruelly murder his adopted son and his Indian wife, Swan played by Delle Bolton, Johnson is forced to engage in a personal war, one man against his enemies. The war he engages includes one of the most gripping fight scenes you will ever see on film and leads to a poignant movie climax.
"Some say Johnson is dead on account of this others say he never will be on account of this." From the standpoint of a classic film I choose to believe the latter.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Redford movie
Robert Redford excels in title role of naïve young man 'gone native', back in the days of the mountain men. Redford is very authentic and obviously relishes his part. Read more
