Tom Berenger who's a gun totin' sharp shootin' Mormon security man
foils an attempted assassination of Brigham Young and is hardly thanked
for his efforts. He investigates a little further and finds there's
quite a complicated conspiracy at work.
It's good to remember that this film is based on a novel, just as the
DaVinci Code is. It's not anything remotely resembling real history of
the Church of Latter Day Saints.
For one thing as another reviewer pointed out the Transcontinental
Railroad had been completed by 1872. Not only completed, but Brigham
Young made money off it in every possible way.
Brigham Young was a complex and charismatic leader who during the Civil
War was practically treated like he was a ruling foreign power by both
Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis. His task as best he saw it was to
keep the spirit of the LDS church alive and not let it get too touched
by outside influences. Of course no one plays a complex and charismatic
religious figure like Charlton Heston. His Brigham Young is like his
Moses if Moses had actually gone into Canaan and had the responsibility
of building a nation as Joshua did.
By the way the Mormons here show enough outside influence. They drink,
they smoke, they indulge in extra-marital affairs just like a whole lot
of gentiles do. Our protagonist Berenger is no exception.
In the film 20th Century Fox did, Brigham Young with Tyrone Power,
Linda Darnell, and Dean Jagger we saw a bit of the colorful Mormon
Scout Porter Rockwell as played by John Carradine. Here the part is
played by James Coburn who's older and wiser. Rockwell's place is still
hotly debated, he was devoted to Brigham Young for certain and his
devotion led to some blood stained hands.
I'm not sure how much controversy this made for TV western has caused
among the LDS community. Apparently they were a lot smarter in handling
this than other religions were with The DaVinci Code. If you remember
this is a novel and not a factual retelling of events, you will get
some insights into the LDS community.
