A woman doesn't realize that the man she has just married is a gangster. When she is implicated in a murder he committed, she turns to an ex-boyfriend, who is now a park ranger, for help. He hides her out in a cabin up in the mountains, and her husband goes on the hunt for both of them. Written by
The failure of the original copyright holder to renew the film's copyright resulted in it falling into public domain, meaning that virtually anyone could duplicate and sell a VHS/DVD copy of the film. Therefore, many of the versions of this film available on the market are either severely (and usually badly) edited and/or of extremely poor quality, having been duped from second- or third-generation (or more) copies of the film.

"Dark Mountain" is a super-cheap B-movie from Pine-Thomas Productions ( a subsidiary of Paramount). Being a cheap B, it clocks in at under 60 minutes and stars relatively unknown actors--Robert Lowery, Ellen Drew and Regis Toomey. Eddie Quillan is on hand to provide unnecessary comic relief.
The film begins with a park ranger (Lowery) asking his girlfriend (Drew) to marry him. The trouble is, the sap doesn't know that she just married another guy (Toomey). What she doesn't realize is that her new sweetie is actually a mobster--and a very nasty one at that. She finds out the hard way when she sees him murder his partner! Now, he decides to use her as a hostage to guarantee his escape from the law. Can her old beau somehow come to the rescue...or at least can his dog come to the rescue?!
This film is an inoffensive B with no real surprises (other than the great performance by the dog). Not a terrible film but also not a very good one. And, by the way, cars do NOT explode like they do in this film!
