A pair of grizzled frontiersmen fight Indians, guzzle liquor, and steal squaws in their search for a legendary valley 'so full of beaver that they jump right into your traps' in this fanciful adventure.

A Mountain Man at the rendezvous (Charlton Heston) brags that he's been from "South Fork to Three Pass!" He should have said "Three Forks to South Pass." Three Forks is in Montana where three rivers come together and give the Missouri River its name and South Pass is in west central Wyoming where it is possible to cross the continental divide on horseback or with wagons.

Yep. Packed in supplies, watered down the whiskey, jacked up the prices... and went to tradin' for beaver.
How'd ya do?
