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.

Goofs

Mrs. Mason hijacks the truck and forces the driver to speed her away from the scene of her crime, but in all the shots of the truck from the front while it's in motion, only one person - the driver - is visible. Mrs. Mason is clearly not in the truck's cab at all. See more »

Above-average programmer about Alaska truckers
27 June 2014 | by (California) – See all my reviews

Bill Williams plays the part-owner of a trucking company in Alaska who runs into trouble due to landslides closing down roads, a business partner who doesn't think Williams is running the company properly and wants to squeeze him out, and his partner's hot blonde wife, with whom Williams had a fling before she was married--and she still wants him. To further complicate matters, a pretty and leggy hitchhiker shows up, takes a job as a waitress in the local diner and sets her sights on Williams, much to the annoyance of Williams' former paramour. This is one of Fox's lower-budget programmers, but it's not all that bad. Williams is earnest, Nora Hayden--the waitress--is a real looker, and the location footage in Alaska helps a lot. The film is hurt by pedestrian writing--courtesy of the film's director, Edward Bernds--and flat performances by a weak supporting cast, but overall it's worth a watch if you've got nothing better to do.
