The Mountain Men

The Mountain Men is a 1980 American Adventure Western film directed by Richard Lang and starring Charlton Heston and Brian Keith.

  • I watched this movie because of the subject matter – Mountain Men. It is a watchable movie.
  • There is a scene at the mountain man rendezvous, where they learned that the beaver were being trapped out, and the demand was dwindling because fashion was moving from the beaver hat to the silk hat.
  • It is a love story. Bill Tyler (Charlton Heston) and Running Moon (Victoria Racimo). The two end up together at the end after many misadventures.
  • It was a tiresome good-guys-vs-Indians western.
