Jeremiah Johnson (the film)

Updated on January 16, 2015

Sydney Pollack's Jeremiah Johnson is an allegory of the story of life

"Jeremiah Johnson made his way into the mountains

"Bettin' on forgettin' all the troubles that he knew...."

Sydney Pollack's Jeremiah Johnson is an allegory of the story of life. It was beautifully shot, has a great cast and will move you to tears and laughter.

Long before Dances With Wolves, Pollack made Jeremiah Johnson about mountain men in the Rockies and their interaction with the territory and the natives. It's hard to imagine a film of this nature seeming more authentic.

      [in reply to Heather426] Thanks Heather. I suppose I don't have to tell you to see 3 Days of the Condor, one of the most important films of our time about the potential dangers of the CIA, also starring Robert Redford and directed by Sidney Pollack.

      Great movie. Robert Redford does a great job playing a mountain man. The movie actually shows how the real mountain men used to live and survive in the mountains and with the Indians. Everyone should see this movie at least once.
