Storyline

Sadie owns a riverboat that gold-miners are using to travel to their claims, while gambling and drinking on the way. The Yukon Mining Company sends Thorne to take over Sadie's boat and then cheat the miners out of their claims. Meanwhile, Sadie has kept her life a secret from her daughter Helen, whom she has sent away to school to live a more refined life, but one day Helen arrives unexpectedly. Her naive boyfriend Bob goes to work for the dishonest Thorne, while Helen enjoys the wild Yukon more than her mother wants her to. Sadie turns to her trusted friend Ace to sort out all the complications. Written by Snow Leopard

Decent movie by a bad studio
13 May 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

If this movie had been made by 20th Century Fox, it probably would have been a classic. I don't know how it happened, but Monogram got the rights and did the picture. That meant everything was done on the cheap, including the direction, the writing and the acting. While there were some journeyman performances by Charles Bickford and Irene Rich, a lot of that was lost by the bad lines they had to deliver and the uninspired directing. Also, June Carlson was awful. The only ones who seemed to try to rise above it all were George Cleveland and Guy Usher as Grub and Stake. Even though it is now defunct I still hate Monogram Studios.
