Fugitive in the old northwest
15 May 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

James Newill gets some forgettable songs to sing in another Renfrew of the Royal Mounted series as he trails a fugitive On The Great White Trail.

It doesn't start out that way as Newill offers to escort Terry Becker on the way to a remote village to get the phone lines up and running. But he soon learns that dear old dad is wanted for killing the local Mountie constable and killing and robbing another man.

In the tradition of Nelson Eddy(singing as well) Newill gets his man, but also gets to find the real murderer and robber.

One snowbound film.
