Storyline

Canada 1931: The unsociable trapper Johnson lives for himself in the ice-cold mountains near the Yukon river. During a visit in the town he witnesses a dog-fight. He interrupts the game and buys one of the dogs - almost dead already - for $200 against the owner's will. When the owner Hasel complains to Mountie Sergeant Millen, he refuses to take action. But then the loathing breeder and his friends accuse Johnson of murder. So Millen, although sympathetic, has to try to take him under arrest - but Johnson defends his freedom in every way possible.

Quotes

Sergeant Edgar Millen: Let me give you a little advice, kid. Just throw those law books away, huh? It's better to turn your eyes and let them fight their damn dogs. Damn sight better than them killin' each other.
Constable Alvin Adams: But you can't let people get away with that - makin' up their own laws.
Sergeant Edgar Millen: The only thing to remember is Millen's Law. You want to stay a Mountie, then all you have to do is keep headquarters happy, huh? 'Cause the only time they're unhappy is when there's an unaccounted for killing. So if you account for all ...

8 September 2003 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

A classic adventure, as aging Mountie Lee Marvin pursues aging goldminer Charles Bronson across the Arctic wilderness. Directed by the man responsible for what many people consider to be the best non-Sean Connery James Bond movie, ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE, and a hell of a cut above later Bronson fare like DEATH WISH 3 and THE EVIL THAT MEN DO. Frankly, one of Bronson's last decent films.
