The narrator of the opening sequences states that Alaska was purchased by "William Seward, President Lincoln's Secretary of State." While Seward had indeed been Lincoln's Secretary of State, Alaska was purchased in 1867, when Seward was the Secretary under President Andrew Johnson. See more »
After a brief history lesson regarding Seward's Purchase of Alaska, this thoroughly average Fox second feature introduces us to Al and Pete (Bill Williams and Nick Dennis), two truckers whose deliveries have been interrupted by a bridge washout. Forced to turn around and return home, they happen upon leggy hitchhiker Tina Boyd (Nora Hayden), who's trying to get to Fairbanks but ends up working at the local truck stop instead. Al and Tina start making goo-goo eyes at each other, boss Mason (Leslie Bradley) is more interested in loot than love, and a plane runs out of fuel and is forced to crash land. Nothing terribly interesting happens, but overall this is not a bad little film, and the Alaska location footage helps considerably. Shame Fox Movie Channel is airing this Regalscope feature in pan and scan, though.
