Storyline

In 1940's Moose Hill, Saskatchewan, outdoorsman Pierre is attracted to saloon-owner Daisy. Hearing of her impending marriage to 'Jap' Durkin, a law officer and rival, Pierre arranges things so the wedding won't occur. Later, Daisy's brother Val, who is also on Durkin's bad side, accidentally kills a crony of Durkin's. Durkin arrests Val and is determined to see him punished, not so much for the killing, but also for the humiliation of the canceled wedding. Pierre, Daisy, and a couple of visiting campers help spring Val, resulting in more complications and another death. Written by Ron Kerrigan <mvg@whidbey.com>

This film is a lot of fun and will leave you with a smile
19 May 2013 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I watched this the other day on TCM and was VERY pleasantly surprised. The main character "Pierre" is a likable rouge played to perfection by John Carroll. He's tough, he's fair, and his good-natured. This was the kind of character I wish had shown up in a series of films. Yeah, as someone else pointed out, this is Hollywood's interpretation of Canada. Still who cares, you could say the same about most American Westerns too, lots of action and little fact. I was impressed by the witty dialog and quirky characters in this. And it was not always predictable either, for instance I was surprised at the way Pierre handled being cheated at cards. I loved this film and consider it a little gem. At the end I found myself feeling good and thinking, "Yep, they just don't make um like that anymore".
