A Mexican-American War veteran, Jeremiah Johnson (Robert Redford), heads to the mountains to live in isolation. Woefully unequipped for the task at hand, Johnson is fortunate to come across a seasoned mountain man (Will Geer) willing to teach him the necessary survival tactics. As life continues in the mountains, Johnson finds himself a native bride (Delle Bolton) and an adopted son (Josh Albee). However, their peaceful existence is threatened when Johnson incurs the ire of the Crow Indians.
Jeremiah Johnson is made in the mold of what movies should be. In an era of blockbusters and CGI graphics it’s nice to see a movie that gets back to basics. Jeremiah is an ex army man who moves to the Rockies to start over. He starts out as a novice in the ways of the woods. With the help of Will Geer (Grandpa Walton) Jeremiah forges himself a place in the wild. The ending is kind of sad but I won’t go into any details. This movie doesn’t go into great detail about his subsequent rampage on the local Indian population. But if I wanted a documentary then I would watch the history channel. Anyway Jeremiah Johnson is a great movie to watch on a cold night when the wind is blowing and it’s good to be inside. For a good adventure Jeremiah Johnson is one to watch again and again.
