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

According to Trey Parker, he based the script partially on "The Odyssey" by Homer. In the film, Shannon Bell is seen reading "The Odyssey". See more »
When the men are naked under their blankets and Humphrey remembers the fudge it is sitting just under the blanket on his stomach so the sudden realization of the fudge's existence is forced. The fudge would have to have been taken from his pack and placed there after undressing and laying down and if the characters are so starving it is unlikely he would have waited so long to break into it.

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.

(At the end of the closing credits) Due to the graphic nature of this film, it should not have been watched by small children. See more »
In the Troma release there is a quick shot of a black cat right before Packer loses his horse in the night. This was not in Parker's original release (fall 1993) in Boulder, CO at the Flatirons Theatre. See more »
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.
