When The Legends Die (1972) (DVD)
Oscar-nominees Richard Widmark and Frederic Forrest star in this Golden Globe nominated Western.Â
Thomas Black Bull's parents reject modern life, and take to ancient paths in the woods, teaching their young son the stories and customs of his ancestors. But Tom's life changes dramatically when his father dies in a tragic accident, and his mother soon dies after.Â
When Tom is discovered alone in the forest with only a bear cub as a companion, he is taken into the world of the white man.
Hard-drinking Red Dillon (Richard Widmark) spots Toms horse-handling skills and becomes his mentor, turning him into a bronco-riding star at the rodeo. But he exploits their relationship over the years by stealing Toms winnings.
Fed up,Tom sets out on his own.
Powerful and timeless, When the Legends Die, adapted from the bestselling classic by Hal Borland, is a captivating story of one man learning to live in harmony with both civilisation and wilderness.
