Watch Robert Redford in one of his best big-screen roles ever as 19th century mountain man Jeremiah Johnson. Set in the mid-1800s, this film is about one man’s inspiring and sometimes tragic efforts to survive America’s untamed wilderness and shed the trappings of civilization. Initially, with a bit of luck and help from a seasoned trapper, Johnson (Redford) learns the ways of the wild. He survives encounters with grizzly bears and hostile Indians in an attempt to start a new life and a family after marrying the daughter of an Indian chief. This classic film was directed by Sydney Pollack in 1972 and stars Redford, Will Geer and Stefan Gierasch. 116 minutes.
