A LITTLE LIGHT FOR THE GREAT WHITE NORTH...!
An Errol Flynn adventure from 1943 directed by Raoul Walsh. Flynn plays a Canadian Mountie who comes across a German air officer in the snowy hinterlands. Sending his partner ahead, Flynn's higher-ups fear his German lineage may compromise his standing w/his prisoner who may use undue influence to corrupt him. Seizing upon this notion, Flynn pretends to be a friend to Germany as he befriends the Nazi (who has broken out from an internment camp w/some other Hessians) so he can upset their plans to construct an airplane to make their escape from Canada. That's a lot of dunderheaded plotting for something that should be as light & airy as a paper plane but the crackerjack direction & the effortless charisma by Flynn is enough to keep even the most jaded viewer firmly planted in their seat for the duration.
