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! NetflixMay 27, 2011 at 11:27 am #1741847
Love it, and with so little dialogue it sure is quotable.

I first saw this in high school many years ago. Always enjoyable.May 27, 2011 at 11:48 am #1741858
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 : )May 27, 2011 at 12:25 pm #1741871
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!May 27, 2011 at 4:15 pm #1741941
Great movie. Made me want to move to Utah. Little Big Man was another great movie from around then.May 27, 2011 at 4:20 pm #1741945

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"May 27, 2011 at 4:32 pm #1741948
'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……May 27, 2011 at 4:40 pm #1741952

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 brainsMay 27, 2011 at 6:29 pm #1741990
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/avzndvnwyncjMay 27, 2011 at 6:32 pm #1741991
That is hysterical! My new theme song!May 27, 2011 at 7:01 pm #1741994

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 :-)May 28, 2011 at 9:55 am #1742162

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?May 28, 2011 at 10:13 am #1742168
"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!May 28, 2011 at 11:02 am #1742179
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.

"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."May 28, 2011 at 3:42 pm #1742235

Yeah. I'm surprised he didn't get the Oscar for best sound effects. ;)May 28, 2011 at 4:54 pm #1742262

Hard to believe it was written by a poet, Surprised they never made it a ride at Disneyland.May 28, 2011 at 5:36 pm #1742279
@kennyhel77Locale: Scotts Valley CA via San Jose, CA
Loved the movie….Jay what a nice shout out. I have totally forgotten about this one. May need to go to Netflix and watch it againMay 28, 2011 at 6:06 pm #1742287
"Surprised they never made it a ride at Disneyland."
From the Washington Times: "One day after Osama bin Laden’s body was dumped into the North Arabian Sea, Walt Disney Co. executives smelled opportunity. The Hollywood giant filed three applications to trademark the term “SEAL Team 6,” the name of the elite special forces team that took down the world’s most wanted criminal. Disney wants the exclusive rights to slap the phrase on every product that could possibly make a buck.
The applications are currently pending before U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and will be assigned to a USPTO examining attorney in approximately three months. According to the company’s filings, Disney wants to be able to sell “SEAL Team 6” branded toys, games, sporting articles, clothing, shoes, hats, hand-held electronic video games, Christmas stockings, Christmas-tree ornaments and even tacky snow globes."
And then, from the Los Angeles Times: "Walt Disney Co. said it will withdraw an application to trademark the term "SEAL Team 6," the name of the military unit that took out Osama bin Laden. Less than a week after the Navy SEAL team's successful mission, Disney moved to patent the name in the hopes of exploiting it for toys and entertainment, making the company the butt of jokes for its greed and annoying the Navy. After the Navy filed its own trademark claim, Disney bailed out. I just want to know why someone in media relations didn't say at the time that maybe, just maybe, this wasn't such a good idea."
Sometimes you just gotta wonder…….
