Soured by civilization, Jeremiah Johnson (Robert Redford) sets out in the mid-1800s to be a mountain man, seeking solitude in a wilderness whose purity he never questioned.

Starving and nearly frozen, he finds refuge with a wily old trapper (Will Geer) whose survival teaching includes going eyeball to eyeball with a grizzly.

Editors Note
Note Sydney Pollack directs this notable picturesque film in which a solitary man named Jeremiah Johnson (Robert Redford) battles ruthless Indians, who use him as the target of a long-awaited vendetta, and the merciless elements of nature, in search of peace. Set in the mid-19th century, after the Civil War, the film centers on Jeremiah as he becomes disillusioned with the ways of his civilization and the ravages of war, and he sets out determined to survive in the Rocky Mountain wilderness by himself.
Plot Summary
Summary Sydney Pollack directs this vast and beautiful wilderness adventure in which Robert Redford plays Jeremiah Johnson. Adapted in part from Vardis Fisher's novel MOUNTAIN MAN, the story pays specific tribute to the reality of the trappers who actually roamed the West in the 1850s. Shot on location in the stunning and desolate snows of Utah, the entire film was made for less than four million dollars.

ReviewSource Variety
Review Jeremiah Johnson, based on Vardis Fisher's novel Mountain Man and a story, Crow Killer, by Raymond W. Thorp and Robert Bunker, is the sort of man of whom legends or sagas are made. Pic leans towards the latter as it meticulously, sans grandiloquence, lays out the life of a male dropout, circa 1825, who decides to live in the Rocky Mountains as a trapper...Director Sydney Pollack has given a skilled, observant mounting as he carefully allows the man to grow in experience and knowhow...Robert Redford, as Johnson, has a solid stamina, a fine feel for the speech of the time, giving an auto-didactic flair as he sometimes comments the actions. He begins to trade with the Indians and wins the esteem of a Crow nation chief to whom he gives a present, to find he must accept the chief's daughter in return...The film has its own force and beauty and the only carp might lie in its not always clear exegesis of the humanistic spirit and freedom most of its characters are striving for.

Clive Hirschhorn, The Warner Bros. Story Glorious to look at and ruggedly acted by its star.
The Motion Picture Guide Beautifully photographed...superbly directed and handsomely acted by Redford and the scant supporting cast.
