A good replay of the old story
21 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While this story has been repeated many times already, this one does offer something new. Meridith Baxter plays Margaret Reed, wife of James Reed, a primary financier of the Donner Expedition.

A wealthy family, the Reeds set out with a huge number of wagons, most carrying their worldly goods, driven by hired help, while the extended family rides in relative comfort in a huge, oversized custom built Connestoga passenger wagon.

Soon their stuck-up, overbearing ways get them in trouble with their fellow passengers and gradually they find themselves in the same "shoes" as their fellow travellers. When James kills another member of the party (self defense?) he is banished from the party, and goes ahead to California, able to travel much faster than the wagons.

And of course, they are trapped on Donner Summit.

One More Mountain is probably more historically accurate than many other variations on the story of the "Donner Party" that have been made in past years. It was a made for TV movie, and suffers the usual TV pacing and production qualities.
