Some say he's dead...some say he never will be.
Soured by civilization, Jeremiah Johnson sets out in the mid-1800s to be a mountain man, seeking solitude in a wilderness whose purity he never questioned. His first Rocky Mountain winter almost kills him. 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. Robert Redford and two-time Academy Award winner Sydney Pollack teamed for the second of their six films together on this box-office hit shot entirely in Utah. Jeremiah Johnson "gets back to Nature" in a way no film ever had before or since.
