Man in the Wilderness (1971)

Rating:PG
Genre:Drama
Release Date:January 1, 1971
Running time:104 minutes
Cast:Richard Harris, John Huston
Director:Richard C. Sarafian

Description: Not a sequel to Richard Harris' A Man Called Horse as is sometime alleged, 1971's Man in the Wilderness nonetheless bears a marked resemblance to that earlier film. Star Harris plays a trapper who joins a Northwest Territory expeditionary group. Left for dead after running afoul of a grizzly bear, Harris struggles to regain his strength and exact vengeance against John Huston, the man who deserted him. Flashbacks reveal who Harris is and how he's come to this. Man in the Wilderness alternates between a blood-spattered retribution tale and a gutsy one-man show for frostbitten Richard Harris.~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
