The Mountain Men [DVD] [1980]

Although Mountain Men probably won't end up on anyone's top list of great Westerns, fans of legendary actor Charlton Heston will probably consider that his appearance alone more than justifies a viewing. Heston and Brian Keith play two craggy fur trappers who, if not hunting or getting into trouble, seem to always be fighting Indians. Columbia-TriStar Home Entertainment's disc, unfortunately, is not presented in the 2.35:1 widescreen format that the film was originally shot in. Nevertheless, the full-screen transfer is acceptable. The picture is sharp and clear, for the most part, and genuinely looks fine. The disc also comes with a French-language option, multiple subtitles, some bonus trailers for other Columbia-TriStar films, and more. Definitely not the best of Heston's long list of films, but worth a look if you're a completist.

The Mountain Men
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 men take her in, unaware that Heavy Eagle has dispatched an army of Indian braves to reclaim her. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
