Did You Know?


Elmer Bernstein wrote the original score for this film. However, it was rejected by director Robert Redford, so Mark Isham composed a new one (for which he received an Oscar nomination). In the original theatrical version of the film, Isham was credited as the composer during the opening credits. But for some reason, in some video and DVD versions of the film, Bernstein is credited as the composer.


Older Norman: Long ago, when I was a young man, my father said to me, "Norman, you like to write stories." And I said "Yes, I do." Then he said, "Someday, when you're ready you might tell our family story. Only then will you understand what happened and why."


When Norman returns to Missoula after college at Dartmouth & meets Jessie (in approximately 1926), she speaks with a stereotypical New York accent. Tough to copy since sound films didn't appear for at least two more years.

Crazy Credits

The scenes on the Blackfoot River were actually shot on the Madison and other rivers around the Bozeman and Livingston areas. The "Big Blackfoot" has already become too polluted and populated to provide the image the scene required.

Alternate Versions

The US DVD has different composer credits for the widescreen/pan & scan version. The widescreen version lists Elmer Bernstein (whose score was rejected) while the pan & scan version lists 'Mark Isham' (who replaced Bernstein).
