Keith stars as an argumentative, curmudgeonly mountain man by the name of
Henry Frapp. His co-star, Charlton Heston, in the role of Bill Tyler, is
Henry's good friend and fellow trapper. Together, they trap beaver, fought
Indians, and become classicly inebriated at a mountain man rendezvous while
trying to sell their "plews", or beaver skins, to a cutthroat
French trader named Fontanel.
Henry manages to
survive a scalping by a ruthless Blackfoot warrior named Heavy Eagle, and is
reunited with Bill Tyler later in the movie to engage in a final, glorious
battle with a Blackfoot war party led by Heavy Eagle.
This was a fun time
for many of our friends to appear in this movies. If you haven't seen the
movie, pickup a copy, you'll enjoy it.
