2.0 out of 5 stars Undemanding at best 23 Aug 2007
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
One of the last major batch of Westerns trying to cash in on the expected success of Heaven's Gate (Eagle's Wing, Cattle Annie and Little Britches, Tom Horn, The Long Riders, Barbarosa, The Legend of the Lone Ranger), The Mountain Men has a serviceable enough script for a throwaway action movie but is hampered by some clumsily abrupt editing and director Richard Lang's rather severe limitations as an action director. Little registers and Charlton Heston and Brian Keith's ageing trappers stalked by Stephen Macht's vengeful Indian never particularly convince as engaging characters or as symbols for a dying way of life thanks in part to an overly predictable script from Fraser Clarke Heston. Victor Jory offers an amusing cameo in his last film as a senile chief and John Glover briefly livens things up as a tenderfoot who rides along for a spell, but Jeremiah Johnson this ain't.

Sony's Region 2 DVD offers no extra features - it doesn't even include a proper menu - but, unlike the fullframe Region 1 NTSC DVD, at least boasts a good 2.35:1 widescreen transfer.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BETTER WESTERNS 28 Dec 2005
Heston and Brian Keith are well cast in this movie, it is set in a time of change in the early west and the scenery and acting superb, alongwith a well directed script makes this a must for early historians of these time long gone, gives you an insight to a way of life in the dawn of America, two older mountain men who are still chasing a way of life which is passing them by and fighting to hold on to it, not one bad performance by any of the cast. a real classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Mountain Men 31 May 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Alongside 'The War Lord' this film must rate as the late Charlton Heston's best. A cracking adventurous tale full of good humour and 'one liners', set in the most heroic period of modern times and filmed amidst some of America's most ruggedly beautiful locations; this film is one of the best westerns ever made! The story is based on two rough tough fur trappers; Bill Tyler(Charlton Heston) and Henry Frapp(Brian Keith) as they roam through the North American wilderness in search of beaver pelts, while at the same time trying to avoid losing their scalps to hostile Indian bands. Having collected an Indian girl along their journey, they soon find she has run away from a brutal native chief. I recommend this 100min DVD as both excellent entertainment and a glimpse into the very real struggle for survival that faced those first heroic Americans as often alone, they led the way into what was then a very dangerous and unforgiving world.The Mountain Men [DVD] [1980]

I liked a lot this little known and somehow atypical 1980 western. Below, more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

Between 1810 and 1880, other than the Indians, many trappers lived also in the Rocky Mountains, engaged mostly in beaver furs trade. Although most of them were White (Americans or Canadians) or half-Indian, some were also Black or Latino (mostly coming from Mexico-owned California). As they usually got along well with local tribes, with time many of them married Indian women. Those trappers were commonly called "mountain men". At the peak of their activity, between 1820 and 1840, there were as much as 3000 mountain men operating every year in the Rocky Mountains area. In those times their yearly rendez-vous gathered usually no less than 500 trappers (and also some traders and many Indians). In 1839-40 the beaver fur trade strongly declined and as the result most of trappers reconverted in other activities (farming, trading, scouting for the Army) - but some die hards survived until 1880, when this mode of life definitely disappeared.

This film tells the story of two such trappers, old timers and best friends Bill Tyler (Charlton Heston) and Henry Frapp (Brian Keith). The story happens somewhere around 1838, in the time when beaver fur trade started to become less and less profitable. Finding themselves in financial trouble Tyler and Frapp decide to give themselves one more season to try to make up for their losses. But to do that they have to enter the part of mountains to which Blackfoot Indians always refused acces to all trappers - and that will put both men in much more trouble than their previous financial worries.
