Mountain Men, The DVD

DVD Release

The DVD for the movie Mountain Men, The was released on June 18, 2002 by Sony Pictures and is rated R.

Plot

Bill Tyler (Charlton Heston) and Henry Frapp (Brian Keith), two older beaver trappers in the Rocky Mountains, find their lives in danger when they encounter Running Moon (Victoria Racimo), a beautiful Blackfoot runaway. Tyler wants no part of her, however she takes him as her own--which angers her true mate, Heavy Eagle (Steven Macht), the powerful local Blackfoot chief. Beautiful photography is one of the highlights of this offbeat mixture of action, adventure, and comedy, which features a script by Charlton Heston's son, Fraser Clarke Heston.
