German made adventure movie set in Alaska during the gold rush era. The late-great Doug McClure(who starred in a number of fantasy-adventure movies in the 70's) stars as Don Rutland, who, despite being an all around good guy, ends up being framed for the robbery of a towns gold shipment and the murder of the transporters. Lots of nice scenery, likable characters, plenty of action & a good score by Italian maestro Bruno Nicolai(who frequently collaborated with Ennio Morricone) makes for a very enjoyable flick. Although 'Hellhounds Of Alaska' has the feel of a family movie, it should be noted that there are a few brief scenes of brutal violence/torture.
