    These are fun polls, but like the trilogy poll I haven't seen any of these either.

      Thanks! That's okay, I'll was just trying to bring a few things back for the forum's comeback.

        Leaving Grizzly Adams (1974) off the ballot is an obvious sign the poll is rigged!

        Regardless, Toklat (1971) still reigns supreme over all these buckskin fringe wearing pretenders to the throne.

          Perhaps a bit unfair but Jeremiah Johnson is the only I have seen so by default gets my vote. I rather enjoy the movie anyway, so I happily give it.

            I would like to watch Toklat, I never saw that one.

              Right back at yeh, I've never seen Man in the Wilderness and will ask about it next time I visit the vid store. The summary on IMDB makes it sound like The Revenant was a remake.

                Fantastic!

                Yeah, I saw bits of The Revenant and instantly thought that.

                I did not like The Revenant at all.

                Man in the Wilderness has some historic influences.

                There was a man in a similar situation.

                I feel it is a well made movie.

                  Yeah, the internet has since told me both shows are based on the story of Hugh Glass.

                  I thought The Revenant was okay-ish, but, other than some vague memories about wondering what kind of mountain man doesn't know to back the hell away as quick as possible if you come upon a bear cub, it sure didn't leave much trace in my memory banks.

                    I didn't care much for The Revenant either. I thought the trailer was way better than the film turned out to be, which is a shame because Leonardo DiCaprio is a fine actor.

                      Well, in my dedication to the truth of this poll I have now watched (rewatched actually) Man in the Wilderness and Jeremiah Johnson. The Mountain Men remains neglected because a rather insistent youthful memory keeps telling me it was bad.

                      Despite some appalling faux folky singer/songwriter soundtrack moments and a klunky streak of Americana, I must admit, for myself, Jeremiah Johnson is the clear winner. It's just the better film.

                      Of course that is probably largely due to Man in the Wilderness being a B film, while Jeremiah Johnson is clearly a major production with a-lister-at-the-time star Robert Redford (near the apex of his fame), director Sidney Pollack (already with a Best Director Oscar under his belt) and scriptwriter John Milius (near the start of his rise).
