40-years-ago next month, Warner Brothers released Sydney Pollack’s Jeremiah Johnson to theaters.
The adventure epic stars Robert Redford (hot off his appearance in The Candidate) as a man disillusioned with his time served in the Mexican War. Johnson drops out of society and moves to the frigid mountains to be alone. Both joy and sorrow follow.
I can remember my Mother taking me to see this film when I was only six-years-old and I really took to it. In fact, all of us who went, loved it. Growing up, I listed it as one of my favorite movies. I don’t think I’ve seen Jeremiah Johnson in 30 years. Time to throw a log on the fire, put my feet up and remedy that.
