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

5.0 out of 5 stars A Redford Treat Feb. 24 2013
By Argus TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Fans will be reasonably happy with this bluray release of "Jeremiah Johnson" (1972) without going overboard. Despite the evident lack of any restoration, a visual improvement is noticeable over the DVD format with sharper resolution and generally superior colour.

The film is a good choice for upgrading to High Definition in terms of both setting and subject matter. Locations in Utah double for the Rockies in this tale of a nineteenth century mountain man (Robert Redford) struggling to survive in a punishing environment. Drawn into a world of towering peaks, desolate snowfields and pine forests, we follow the character from his rejection of urban society through a series of testing challenges to carve out a life in the wilderness. Watch for the irony of "civilization" reaching out when Johnson feels compelled to violate a Crow burial ground while guiding cavalry to rescue stranded settlers. The decision and its consequences are a pivotal moment.

As the film is partly a study in solitude some scenes contain minimal dialogue and these serve to underline a real strength of Redford's craft. It is that of being not so much an actor as a "reactor" in the way events and people are reflected on his face, perhaps best demonstrated here in the cabin episode where Johnson grieves while his horse moves restlessly outside.

Supporting actors, Will Geer as the wily old trapper Bear Claw and Stefan Gierasch playing Del Gue ("...with an E"), are a delight and it's almost worth watching the movie for them alone.

The project was a favorite of Redford's, one which became a labour of love for him and director Sydney Pollack who even mortgaged his home at one point to help finance it. They provide a commentary on the bluay edition along with writer John Milius.

This DVD is something I will cherish for years to come. I could not find it anywhere. It was a film my dad and I shared when I was younger and it brings back fond memories when I watch it. Since my dad passed, it brings me comfort to watch and remember our times together. Thanks Amazon!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Redford movie July 31 2013
By Donylo
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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. Simple story, with strong supporting performances from Will Geer and Stefan Gierasch who teach Jeremiah how to survive in the wilderness.

Format:DVD
Robert Redford and Sydney Pollack, the Academy Award-winning director of Out of Africa team up (the 2nd of their 6 films together) for this powerful saga of a man whose determined search for contentment leads to back-breaking, even mind-breaking hardship, and to constant battle with hostile native Americans. This absolutely unforgettable and spectacularly beautiful, yet haunting adventure film captures both the epic scale of an unconquered Nature and the small, frustrating, hard scrabbling struggles of a lone man desperately trying to start a fire during a gale-force blizzard, cross a meadow knee-deep in snow or catch something, anything, to eat.
Filmed entirely on location in winter-time Utah, this movie captures on film Jeremiah Johnson's (Robert Redford) attempt in the mid 1800s to become a mountain man, seeking solitude in a wilderness whose purity he never questioned. This film is sure to find its way into the private library of every connoisseur of superb movie making, and is one of those very rare films you can enjoy again and again! Masterpiece!
