JEREMIAH JOHNSON (Theatrical Release USA 1972)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Jeremiah Johnson—a classic for Robert Redford—deserves to be in the home video library collection as a survival story that has re-watchable status for years to come. A complete winner from its opening scene to its ending scene, the film educates, completely engrosses audience, and wins on nearly every level that a movie critic can critique. Terrific casting support makes this film stand out from the rest and gives credit to the skills of Director Sydney Pollack.
