He died when she was just a baby but her lawyer, Frank Becker, thinks she is entitled to half of Henry Dundas' extensive mining operation. He's not a very scrupulous lawyer however and has his own plans. Written by garykmcd

Better than most of the Mountie films of the period
9 December 2000 | by leecozadSee all my reviews

Gorgeous scenery, and breath-taking views. Probably filmed in or around the Sierras - possibly Lake Tahoe. Boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl in the end. Sound familar? Well, this is still better than most of the Mountie films of the period.
