Storyline

Al Graham and Gerard Mason are partners in an Alaskan trucking company. They quarrel over expenses and losses. Graham has fallen for Tina Boyd, the cashier at a restaurant. Mason's wife, Janet, shows up and makes a play for Graham, and since they were lovers before she threw him over for Mason, Graham and Janet resume their affair. Mason learns of this, and Janet shoots him and forces a truck-mechanic to help her getaway. Graham speeds after them knowing there has been a landslide and hoping to prevent an accident.

Two timing northern vixen
24 July 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Edward Bernds who as a producer/director is mostly identified with the Bowery Boys produced this northern frontier melodrama about a pair of men who share a partnership in trucking company. Bill Williams is the hands-on management type while Leslie Bradley is the front office guy. What brought these two together as business partners God only knows, but the affair Williams is having with Bradley's wife Lyn Thomas will definitely drive them apart.

Thomas is the reason to see this B film, she's one piece of work. This could have been a plot for the Northern Exposure series. Fortunately for Williams he has good girl Nora Hayden.

Shot on location for nickels and dimes Bernds did not splurge for color and that's a pity. Some colorful Alaskan rustic characters are part of the plot as well.

But Lyn Thomas really owns this film
