Did You Know?

Indian flute music is performed by Jan Michael Looking Wolf Reibach, a Kalapuya Native from the Grand Ronde Tribe of central Oregon. Jan also appears with his flute in a scene with Suzanne Marie Doyon and Floyd Red Crow Westerman. When producer Richard Doyon first heard Jan's music he was moved and was overjoyed when Jan offered his music for the movie. Hearing that Jan's uncle had recently passed on and that Jan had been very close to his uncle, Richard asked if Floyd Red Crow Westerman's character, originally called Great Elk, could be renamed in honor of Jan's uncle. Jan said he was honored, as was the tribe, and so the character's name was changed to Standing Elk.See more »

Poor fantasy-action flick of an interesting legend, 22 April 2014
Author: SimonJack from United States

Having lived in Oregon, I am familiar with the legend of the Tillamook gold. I also trekked over, up, down and around Neahkahnie Mountain several times. But I wasn't looking for treasure. It is part of the Oregon Coast Range and has some wonderful hiking trails. They wind through rain forest, along deep woods ridges, and along paths that lead to outstanding views of the Oregon Coast from up high. The coast highway, U.S. 101 runs through Oswald West State Park that encompasses the mountain. The town of Manzanita is below the most spectacular view that includes Nehalem Bay and Tillamook Bay in the distance.

The premise for this story could lead to the making of a good film. But, unfortunately, this one falls far short. The script jumps all over the place, and there's little coherence in the plot. The acting is fair by some of the cast, but Suzanne Doyon in the lead role as Julie is flat. Too many diversions and subplots are in this. The attempted humor with Richard Doyon and Mary Stein, playing Clyde and Billie Stahl, misfires throughout. The family problems and subplots only add to the incoherence of the plot and distractions from the story.

My four stars are for the scenery, the location shots, and the exploration of the legend that dates to the early 17th century. Unlike the implication of this movie, the treasure has never been found. That is, to anyone's knowledge. But some people believe it may have been found in the early 1800s by Thomas McKay. If he found it, he never let on that he did; but this outcome has considerable credence because McKay disappeared for a time after looking for the treasure, and then appeared years later in Oregon, independently wealthy.

At best, this is a fair movie about a search for treasure. But it gets sidetracked so often that it's hard to sit through. It seemed much longer than its 107 minutes. Only the most avid treasure enthusiasts may find this film of enough interest to sit through the whole thing.
