The movie is a huge disappointment compared to the book!
First of all, Sgt. Mike Flannagan was a Royal Canadian Mounted Policeman who was over 6' tall and when I saw the movie, with Dick Powell playing the role....well, he just didn't fill the boots! As has been said before by others, the movie glosses over the hardships Kathy Flannagan went through and the true pioneer spirit of a woman who grew up in Boston and was not prepared for the rigors of living in the Canadian wilderness. I would not give this movie more than a 2. Lois Z. a.k.a Rusty T. clown.
