This is an excellent true story, one of the gems of mountain man folklore, set in 1930's Northern Canada. This Mike Mazurki version is however, a rather sterile version, of the story. Made in a style akin to an early Walt Disney movie.

When you get passed the large animal cast. It's still a passable enough version of the mystery of the "Mad Trapper".

I have watched many many movies but this one, I've watched over and over again to the point of almost wearing out my VHS tape..

Here is a story about a man who just wanted to be left alone, to live his way, as god intended, but was interrupted by someones greed.. Put yourself in this man's place and see what you would have done...

This is an EXCELLENT movie to watch...

As much hype and hoopla movies like A Bug's Life and Alladin carry with them ... movies like Challenge to be Free tend to fall to the side as unimportant figments of a different decade. This movie is not unimportant by any means ... it takes you on a wonderous journey ... leaving you in the end to realize the importance of trying to respect and understand the ways of not only the people around us, but the people we identify as our foes.

GREAT movie! Based on a true story and let me tell ya, it's a joy to watch. An accident makes this outdoorsman run from the law and shows a great chase thru the woods, mountains and snow. The guy keeps one step ahead of the law 90% thruout the movie.

This movie has haunted me all through my life. After seeing it when it was released on commercial TV in 1976 as a child and again on cable in 1983 as a teenager, I decided to give up on any pursuits of a conventional skill set and learn how to trap animals, pan for gold and live in the wild like Trapper. The end results was that I found I was just too domesticated for that kind of lifestyle and living life as a 'loner' is no way to live. It was a great surprise when I found out years later that the movie was 'loosely' based on a true story that had been researched by Dick North who wrote a book about it called 'The Mad Trapper of Rat River Valley'. This movie (which was actually going to be released in theaters in 1972 under the similar title 'The Mad Trapper of the Yukon'.) was somewhat of a simplistic almost 'Disneyesque' version of the book. It's one of those movies where most people I know who see it say 'Meh.', but for me it symbolizes a defining moment in my life.
