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>

During the "Trapper Song", in music theory terms E-flat is the relative minor of F-sharp; however, it wouldn't be "spelled" that way. That would be called D-sharp minor. 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.

"My father was an elephant, but that's irrelevant..."
15 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Maybe I was just in the right mood to watch it, but I found it's casual randomness and altogether ridiculous feel to be more than funny. I do agree that the sets were cheesy, as well as the effects. But it was truly the Shpdoinkle movie of the year. More than once did I burst out with hysterical laughter. I would deem it better than basketball and Orgasmo, and equally the hilarity of Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Love this movie. "That's all I'm asking for!"

Needless to say, after watching it and writing this comment, I am going to go build a snowman...
