Storyline

Alfred Packer was a mountain guide and sole survivor of a party of pioneers that got lost in the mountains in winter. Accused and convicted of murdering and eating his travelling companions, he was to be executed by hanging.The movie begins at his trial, where he pleads his innocence to an unsympathetic audience. Only reporter Polly Pry will listen to his story, which is then related to the viewers in the form of flashbacks. As Packer and his gold-prospecting clients make their way through the forests and mountains, they encounter bemused Japanese Indians, an unimpressed group of mountain men and the brutal Rocky Mountain winter, all of which inspire the travellers to break out into song and dance. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

During the first "Lets Build a Snowman" scene, there is a close-up of the tap-dancing. The next shot is a brief wide shot. In the background, the snowman's head is replaced with an alien head. See more »

Goofs

Right before Packer and the others meet the trappers for the first time, you can clearly see that Leanne is tied up. She is also clearly tied up during the "That's All I'm Asking For!" song. Right after she ran away, Noon asks Packer if she was tied up and Packer replies that he never ties her up. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Title Card: The film you are about to see was originally released in 1954. Upstaged by the overwhelming popularity of "Oklahoma!", it's short lived theater run was canceled, and "Alfred Packer: The Musical" soon fell into obscurity. The original negative, re-discovered just last year, has been painstakingly restored using state-of-the-art color enhancing and computer reconstruction technology. The film's violent scenes have been edited out for your viewing pleasure.

Refreshing as a cup of grape juice
5 February 2006 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

This film shows that if you have energy, love and the want to do something, it can become something great. Even with only a little money. This feels as much like a Troma movie as it is a Trey Parker movie. Anyway, I would assume Parker has watched Troma movies, who wouldn't? What would be better to, say, a child growing up? And of course to us "adults" also. OK, the film is really hilarious. Acting, cutting, photography, script, MUSIC!, everything. It's perfect. There isn't many boring moments in this film. Parker's Packer is a quite funny character, just as every other character here also. I'm not very enthusiastic of Parker's other work, not that I would hate them either, they just don't mean nothing to me. But here he does good job, and has his film distributed by one of the world's greatest production companies.
