    I might also. I really don't remember it so I think it might be doable for me since I can't watch a film twice.

    I did yesterday though....watched "into the Wild". I did remember parts of it since it was a long movie I just fast forwarded thru some parts.

    Sad and tragic story in my opinion. :(

    Haven't seen that one, will google it ..............
    James Mason was so good with Judy - very natural and played the 'drunk' to perfection

    I also bought the book a couple weeks ago since it was in my Book Bub. Haven't read anything about how closely the movie follows the book though.

    The book, to no surprise, offers more detail, but I think the two are consistent.

    I didn't even notice. It's a good movie and true.

    Yep and what's even worse is that if he would have lived 2 weeks longer he would have been found by the moose hunters.

    Seems he made a few mistakes in his last days/weeks that probably cost him his life.
