Product Description

Robert Redford stars as Jeremiah Johnson, a man who turned his back on civilisation in 1850 to learn a new way of survival in the Utah mountains. He soon becomes part of the wildlife and his new lifestyle brings many rewards, until some hostile Native Americans start to stir up trouble.

From Amazon.co.uk

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 civilisation 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, Jeremiah Johnson boasts an abundance of breathtaking widescreen scenery, and the story (despite a PG rating) doesn't flinch from the brutality of the wilderness. --Jeff Shannon

There have been lots of Westerns, but few which have covered the lives of that hardy breed the Mountain Man. Which is a pity considering many led such exciting and adventurous lives. These men were instrumental in opening up the American West. Names such as Joe Walker, Jim Bridger and Kit Carson became legends. But many others were less fortunate and have no burial place to mark their passing. "Jeremiah Johnson" is a fitting tribute to these brave men.

The director Sydney Pollack is better known for such films as "Out of Africa" and "The Way we Were". Certainly not for Westerns. Robert Redford and Pollack were regular collaborators. The film must have held great appeal for Redford given that it was shot on location in his beautiful adopted state of Utah. It is based on two stories. "Crow Killer" by Raymond Thorp/Robert Bunker and "Mountain Man" by Vardis Fisher. Fisher's book has been in print since 1965 and is possibly the best fictional account of these mens lives.

The film faithfully follows the life of one such man who leaves his home to escape into the wilderness. We follow his struggles to adapt to his harsh new environment. A place which is unforgiving of inexperience. But learn he does thanks to the help of an old mountain man played splendidly by Will Geer. At the end of his tough appreticeship he is able to become totally self sufficient. Eventually he takes on an adopted family which leads to a tragedy. Later he incurs the wrath of a local Indian tribe.

The film has a lovely authentic feel to it to it. You feel the loneliness these men must have felt way beyond civilisations influence. Many of the mountain men were larger than life characters and that is how they are shown in this film.

I watched this movie again having last watched it some 18 yrs ago as a kid, and wondered how it would stand the test of time? Well I was not disappointed, beautiful photography, solid performances a simple story with few words and dialogue, and the result is truly evocative movie, albeit idealising the a way of life in the 'Old West'. Redford gives a good performance,(as I've said one of little words... which feels right) and there is lovely supporting roles for Will Greer (yes of Waltons fame) as the wily old trapper teaching the ' pilgrim' Redford the ways of the Mountain men, after he escapes the rigours of 1800's 'civilization' for the purer simpler existence in the wilderness. There's a great little cameo performance in the guise of the character ' Del Gru' who we see as the bald headed trapper (to discourage the indians scalping him) who crosses paths with Redford on a couple of occasions. In many ways they don't make westerns like this anymore, and this film has a resonance and simple power which stays with you long after the credits have rolled. I'd say buy this one

25 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Joe HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Feb. 2004
Format: VHS Tape
Way back (1972) when a much younger Robert Redford worked more in front of the camera than behind it, he starred as JEREMIAH JOHNSON, a man disgusted with mid-1800's U.S. "civilization", who decides to drop out, and then tune-in to a purer life as a fur trapper in the Rocky Mountains.
Initially, Johnson epitomizes the term "tenderfoot", and would have starved on the job had he not been taken under the wing of a grizzled, experienced mountain man, Bear Claw, marvelously played by Will Geer. With new skills learned from his mentor, Jeremiah strikes out on his own. Along the way, he becomes encumbered with a "family" - a small white boy essentially orphaned by an Indian raid, and a native wife more or less forced on him by her brother, a friendly Flathead Indian chief. In time, he learns to love them both - an emotional investment for which he pays dearly after a band of Crow Indians retaliates for a major social faux pas that Johnson commits while helping an Army cavalry detachment rescue a party of snow-bound pioneers. From that point, revenge takes over on a tit for tat basis. The conclusion is perhaps a lesson for present-day enemies of long standing on how to end for both sides what is otherwise a no-win situation.
Filmed on location in the Rockies, JEREMIAH JOHNSON is a scenic and powerful contribution to the Western genre of filmmaking. It does particularly well in depicting the lonely solitude lived by the American mountain man of yore. Redford's portrayal of a regular guy just trying to get along and survive is beyond reproach. As a matter of fact, I think it's one of the better roles he's played in his career. Nowadays, when Westerns aren't as much in vogue as they used to be, perhaps the film is worth another look. Oh, and be circumspect when it comes to sauntering through graveyards.

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." But soon he finds that his lowland skills no longer do him any good, almost starving 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.
