We pause to observe once more the lush beauty of our Alaskan sun; to rejoice in the return of fish, flies, fowl and flower; and to welcome home our truant Tyler. Now read that back to me.

Henry Fonda doesn't contribute much to this film, although Dorothy Lamour does put in a good performance. This is really a George Raft film who puts in a strong performance, and there is a lot that you can learn from his acting. Fonda seems to be trying too hard to act. You just don't believe him, and you feel that he was very lucky to get a break in films in the 1930s. Even Akim Tamaroff puts in a better performance than Fonda standing shoulder to shoulder with Raft as an equal. I can see what Cecil B. DeMille saw in Tamaroff to cast him in 'The Buccaneer', although that was not a good film.
Despite all this, I fell asleep during the film because it bored me to tears.
