I just watch this movie last night and what a classic mountain story. I think I was in my teens when I saw this last-there is perhaps 30 lines of dialogue in the entire film. Great story but a little sad towards the end. Excellent scenery and a story of a True Mountain Man..
Highly Recommended! Netflix

Love it, and with so little dialogue it sure is quotable.

"Skin that one, pilgrim, and I'll get you another!"

Good times.

I first saw this in high school many years ago. Always enjoyable.

Good recommendation - I will put in my queue.

Can 1972 really be 39 years ago. That was high school graduation for me. Lord have mercy on my poor pitiful geezer soul : )

Okay, so I guess I'm the kid here. I saw it in the theater at 10 years old. Loved it then. Saw it recently on cable and loved it again. Great movie!

Great movie. Made me want to move to Utah. Little Big Man was another great movie from around then.

I was in high school too, very impressionable too. I did move to Utah to go to college but not because of the movie. Del Q had most of the dialog. "Mother Q didn't raise no fool"

'Tis truly a great movie. An excellent choice for a fun movie night while out backpacking.

As are zombie movies. For some real fun while winter backpacking, have your group watch "Dead Snow" and then see who goes to sleep......

Bear Claw Chris Lapp: You've come far pilgrim.
Jeremiah Johnson: Feels like far.
Bear Claw Chris Lapp: Were it worth the trouble?
Jeremiah Johnson: What trouble?

Heya Tom, it’s Bob from the office down the hall
Good to see you buddy, how’ve you been?
Thing have been OK for me except that I’m a zombie now
I really wish you’d let us in
I think I speak for all of us when I say I understand
Why you folks might hesitate to submit to our demand
But here’s an FYI: you’re all gonna die screaming

All we want to do is eat your brains
We’re not unreasonable, I mean, no one’s gonna eat your eyes
All we want to do is eat your brains
We’re at an impasse here, maybe we should compromise:
If you open up the doors
We’ll all come inside and eat your brains

Thanks for the idea of what to watch this rainy cold night in Oregon. I downloaded it here and it looks great http://stagevu.com/video/qhviygyefprm This site also has Lonely are the Brave , an Edward Abbey story with Kirk Douglas in the lead. Great movie about the closing of the West and not fitting in.

Also 5 copies of Dead Snow .http://stagevu.com/video/avzndvnwyncj

Love the movie. Lived out in the country in Wisconsin as a kid and didn't see many movies in the theater. Saw this one and it supercharged my desire to someday explore the mountains of the west :-)

Probably my favorite western. Saw it in the gym in my high school here in Japan with my whole school. Still remember the voices and music echoing all around.

Whatever happened to Robert Redford?

"Whatever happened to Robert Redford?"

Oh, he keeps pretty busy.

Wanted to add that "Deliverance" preceded "Jeremiah Johnson" by a couple of months, pretty well bookending the wilderness experience in the minds of moviegoers.

I'm surprised no one has remade Deliverance. Probably because no one will take the Ned Beatty part. I always thought it was funny, my wife got her Dad to go to one movie in her life with her, and they mistakenly went to Deliverance. Pretty traumatic for a 16 year old girl!

Heh, traumatic sounds about right. Worst. Date. Movie. Ever. Much less seeing it with a parent.

Reminds me of visiting friends when one's mom was staying with them. My buddy and I went to the video store to pick out a comedy for the evening. I'd heard "Pink Flamingos" was funny, so that's what we rented.

Feel free to fill in the rest.

Cheers,

"I'm surprised no one has remade Deliverance"

They DID remake Deliverance a few years back...and Burt Reynolds made a guest appearance, too:

"Deliverance" made Ned Beatty a star. Boy! What a role to ALWAYS be remembered by. But, as they say here in Hollywood, "It takes what it takes" and "Something is better than nothing."
