Throughout the film gunshots are heard as a modern high velocity (crack sound as the bullet is supersonic) rather than the boom of a subsonic blackpowder firearm. Also, the firearm smoke is minimal (modern smokeless powder) modern smokless powder wasn't available until about 1890. See more »
His name was Jeremiah Johnson, and they say he wanted to be a mountain man. The story goes that he was a man of proper wit and adventurous spirit, suited to the mountains.

In shooting his character as a solitary figure against a field of white, Pollack turned Johnson into something bordering on a spiritual experience
Filmed in the snow-covered vastness of the Utah Rocky Mountains, Robert Redford plays well a deserter from the Mexican War who wages a bitter struggle against the elements and Indians in order to lead a life of solitude
He heads into the mountains, only to find that there is the wind that never seems to stop Sometimes he swears he is going insane while the storms that he has never seen screech booming with their thunder Around him, snow squalls that kill everything that is unprepared Jeremiah's first winter proves almost fatal because of his inexperience in coping with the harsh Rockies Fortunately, he meets a real mountain man seasoned to the ways of the wild Bear Claw takes Johnson in and shares his knowledge with him
Travelling the untamed wilderness, Jeremiah finds out that it is a land fit only for the savages, and he has seen what they are like But he has seen worse when he happens upon an Indian massacre of a settler's family or upon a bald man buried to his neck in sand by Blackfeet Indians And much worse after violating the Crow sacred burial ground while helping cavalry men find some lost settlers
