Goofs

The signs seen at the various internment camp sites read "Department of National Defense". In Canada, which uses British spellings, that last word would be spelled "Defence". Also, there was no such thing as a "Department of National Defence" in Canada during World War II. See more »

Colonel Hugo von Keller: You should know, Wagner, how determined we Nazis are! We've known for a long time what we've wanted, and we're prepared to take it.

Northern Pursuit

The reason Canadians didn't fight the Japanese during WWII was because they had them all locked in internment camps.

And while Japanese-Canadians were never a threat, the axis members in this action movie were.

RCMP Corporal Wagner (Errol Flynn) and his partner (John Ridgely) capture a Nazis Colonel (Helmut Dantine).

On discovering Cpl. Wagner is of German ancestry, Herr Colonel asks him to join him. Later, when the Colonel escapes, Cpl. Wagner does.

Together, with Native guides, they recover a German bomber that had been stashed in northern Manitoba before the war.

Now, the only person who can stop Jerry from air-bombarding Canadian waterways is the two-timing Mountie, who's been working undercover.

Using Idaho's snowcapped mountains to represent the prairie terrain of the Keystone Province, Northern Pursuit is a geographical joke. Fortunately, its spy-thriller theatrics are entertaining.

Besides, how can the world's top two beer consuming countries not get along?
