An Excellent Rendition Of Our Neglected History
The story follows two free trappers around the time when the fur trade was ending (probably 1840s). One trapper (Heston) saves the life of an Indian woman from her fate at the hands of another tribe, and the plot goes from there. The scenery in the movie is spectacular (mostly in the vicinity of the Grand Tetons in Wyoming), the clothing and equipment is accurate for the time period, and the depiction of the relationship between the trappers and local tribes, as well as between the tribes, is done better than any other movie that I have seen. The acting, across the board, is excellent. Heston and Keith do superb jobs depicting aging trappers with none of the super cool of characters in most westerns. I give this movie my highest rating. Watch and enjoy.

The Mountain Men
One of my all-time favorites! Brian Keith was a far cry from his suit wearing clean cut image. Very believable rugged story line of how mountain men survived the elements and dangers of the mountain life. Charlton Heston always a great lead man makes you a believer in the struggle to survive this life and where just staying alive on a daily basis is the top priority.

the mountain men
This movie somehow got poor reviews when originaly released but it's worth watching for the cinematography alone. The scenery is spectacular when it snows you literaly feel cold! The director realy captures the overwhelming sense of loneliness and vulnerbility the m/men must have felt, the action is powerful and compelling co star Brian Keith steals the show, his portrayal of trapper Henry Frapp is oscar worthy and Charlton Heston turns in another solid performance. This movie is a must for any western or american history buff.

The Mountain Men.... Brian Keith Charlton Heston.
I had seen this particular film play many years ago. Having thoroughly enjoyed it, I decided to purchase a copy, not only for my personal enjoyment! But for my wife who never had the opportunity to participate in the intimate tale of love, friendship, adventure relating to the pioneers of this wonderful continent!! The obvious off screen friendship of Brian Keith, and Charlton Heston shone through with their acting clawing you into their world of danger, cold and hardship!! Do please watch the film if you get the chance, it's a kitchen sink type of western, with much more realism, and feeling for the time in which it was set!!<br><br><br>Bill Stammers.

Well portrayed western.
Charlton Heston and Brian Keith are in sync together in their characters Bill Tyler and Henry Frapp, mountain men. The scene where Bill Tyler's horse and his Native American enemy's horse collide is awesome! The scenery is also breathtaking.
