Jules Vincent, a happy-go-lucky, outgoing French Canadian trapper in the wild Northwest, befriends a beautiful Native American girl, and although he makes an enemy of bully Mike Brody, he agrees to travel with him. When Brody tries to kill them, Vincent kills him in self-defense. He is pursued by a by-the-book, idealistic Constable Pedley, who believes in the mounties' credo "we always get our man." The country is rugged and fraught with dangers like white water rapids, avalanches, wolf packs and desperadoes. After capturing Vincent, the inexperienced Mountie finds he is in no shape to get back to civilization without Vincent's help. Pedley is torn between fulfilling his duty and freeing the man who has saved his life. Written by
I first saw this movie in 1952 at a theater in Chattanooga tenn when it first was released. It mesmerized me then and has done the same 10 to 20 times I have seen it since. It has a reality to it that is totally lacking in most hollywood films. And maybe the main reason its to my liking is Steward Granger. He was the narrator of the books on tape title ( call of the wild ) and he made the experience infinitely more enjoyable and exciting for me . Thanks ,my name is barney and I am 68 yrs. I hope ted Turner will release this title to dvd or vhs at some point from his film library.
