Ex-cop Vic Barron crossed the wrong mobsters; his wife and child were killed and he himself scarred, framed and imprisoned. On release, Vic has but one desire, revenge on still-hiding Tino Morelli. The trail leads to the isolated city of Ketchikan, Alaska, where Vic finds his enemy...also the latter's charming little daughter...and tavern owner Peggy Harding, who's fascinated by the soft-spoken but volcanic Vic. And someone they're not expecting has violent designs on them... Written by

The Ketchikan airline depicted, Ellis Air, was an authentic Ketchikan company, founded by Bob Ellis in 1936. The aircraft shown in the movie is a Grumman G-21 Goose amphibious craft. If you look closely at the bottom of the plane you can see the wheels, which were used for ground landings. Ellis Air merged with Alaska Coastal Airlines in 1962, and this concern was itself taken over by Alaska Airlines in 1968. See more
