Wow! This film(jeremiah johnson) is so wonderful.

The movie follows the escapades of mountain man Jeremiah johnson(robert redford) as he travels through the rocky mountains. The film is a relaxing romp for two hours with a wonderfully pleasent soundtrack. it takes its time to tell a story. It becomes a revenge picture the last 45 minutes of the film.

very nice film indeed.


I did some research on this character and as it turns out Jeremiah Johnson actually was a real person. however he was known as "Liver-eating Johnson" because it was rumored that he would eat the liver of indians he killed(which was not exaclty true, he openly admitted in an interview that he never did eat liver).


great film, check it out.

  No, Banjo, its from 1972 so I wouldn't consider that recent.  Grin  Like Firecracker said, it's a very good movie, carried almost single-handedly by Redford, and well worth a rent or buy.

you beat me to the explanation Tim Grin

definatly worth a buy though. you can find it at an insultingly cheap price.

Much like "Once upon a time in the west", I recently saw it for $7.99. What an insult!!!!!!!

Got if for $5.99 at the mall, well worth the bucks along with Yellow Sky.

Haven't seen this film since I saw it on the big screen in Missoula, Montana (Flathead Indian country) . Forgot how gorgeous the scenery was in the film. Great addition to my collection takes place in the 1830-40's or into the early 50's. A different kind of western, closer to "The Big Sky", "Last of the Mohicans", and "Drums Along The Mohawk" that flintlock era before cap & ball.

This is a good example of what we don't get on TCM or AMC, what is up with that, we keep getting reruns of John Wayne westerns and practically nothing else, I mean there were a whole slew of pretty decent American Westerns in the 70's that you just don't see anymore like they fell off the face of the earth.

Jeremiah Johnson was alright. A bit over-rated in my opinion.

I didn't think it was rated at all, lol.  You never see it on TV.

What I like is there is hardly any dialog, its a visual film and it does that very well, with a lot of very scenic shots that give a good feel of what it must have been like before the first wagon trains stated to cross the plains and Rockies.

That's true, it's never on tv. I saw it on DVD from Hollywood Video.

I wasn't at all, but it still didn't live up to my expectations. Maybe I'll pick it up and try watching it again.

What exactly were you expecting?   Huh

Its better than the Hollywood extravaganza cartoonish Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid with the dreaded "Raindrops totally take you out of the fim shmaltzy interlude".  Cool

Firecracker,

Great film and a great director (Sydney Pollack).
If you liked this movie I am sure you would especially
enjoy "MAN IN THE WILDERNESS". It is of the same genre with miniscule dialogue. The soundtrack is stirring and magnificent. Richard Harris is remarkable in this film. Do yourself a favor and RENT THIS MOVIE!! You won't be disappointed.
It is definitely in my top five films of all times. Cool Cool Cool Cool

  geoman, have you seen The Scalphunters with Burt Lancaster, Ossie Davis, Telly Savalas, and Shelley Winters?  A very good western that seems to fly under the radar.

  And it's not a western, but how about another Pollack/Lancaster movie, Castle Keep?  Trippy WWII movie with great cast, good humor, and slam-bang finish.
