Movie Info

This gorgeously shot western, filmed in the Bridger-Teton National Forest and the Shoshone National Forest, stars Charlton Heston and was written by his son Fraser Clarke Heston. The story concerns two grizzled mountain men -- Bill Tyler (Heston) and Henry Frapp (Brian Keith) -- during the dying days of the fur-trapping era. The plot begins when Running Moon (Victoria Racimo) runs away from her abusive husband Heavy Eagle (Stephen Macht) and comes across the two seedy fur trappers. The mountain

Doesn't even cut it as a made-for-television movie.

The rubber Seymour Cassell head makes it almost worthwhile.

Audience Reviews for The Mountain Men

To be honest, I picked this movie up just because there was hairy men on the front cover at the Video Store. Who doesn't like a good beard? And as I was watching it I realized,"Hey, it's that voice from Planet of the Apes!" Yep, it was Heston alright. I thought this movie was great! It wasn't as serious as an Eastwood Western and it wasn't overly Hollywood-ized like Tombstone. Don't get me wrong, I freaking love Tombstone. I enjoyed the humor, the love, and the crazy whiskey drinking bearded men without a care in the world. If you like movies like Jeremiah Johnson then you will like this! The Native Americans in this movie are a riot!
