Jacques Tourneur makes his best Western.
4 August 2002 | by (revofog) – See all my reviews

A woman (Taina Elg) of French origin moving along the French (the troops of Nouvelle-France) and the British acts as a spy in the Canadian woods at the border of the obscure line between the French and the British. The Northwest Passage is important and a British colonel (Patrick Macnee) is to accompany Major Rogers (Keith Larsen) and his sergeant (Buddy Ebsen) for stealing maps and an important French prisoner. The uniforms and the French-speaking is correct (with a Canadian accent) as well as most of the historical details. The French are not depicted too bad and the actions and the fighting are realistic but as always French soldiers tend to be shot more easily than their American or British counterparts. The story has some weak points as Major Rogers can disguise himself and go into the French military headquarters of général marquis de Montcalm in Québec (in fact the general was killed in combat there in 1759) without being recognized.
