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

The exciting adventure films of Stewart Granger were popular.
Stewart Granger made a number of very exciting outdoor adventure films. The Last Hunt, King Solomon's Mines and The Wild North all appeared when he was at the height of his popularity. The Wild North is exceptionally exciting with his canoeing down a raging river and fighting off a pack of ravenous wolves. The only small criticism would be with his rather tortured French accent. He plays the role of a French trapper pursued by the Royal Mounted Police. The movie must have been shot on location somewhere in Canada or Alaska. The scenery is very beautiful and quite harsh. I saw this film on TV and noticed it was not available in any format. I wish it was available on DVD or that someone could provide a copy in VHS. I would love to own this film.
