Jules Vincent, a happy-go-lucky, outgoing French Canadian trapper in the wild Northwest, befriends a beautiful Native American girl, and although he makes an enemy of bully Max Brody, he agrees to travel with him. When Brody tries to kill them, Vincent kills him in self-defense. He is pursued by a by-the-book, idealistic Constable Pedley, who believes in the Mounties' credo "we always get our man." The country is rugged and fraught with dangers like white water rapids, avalanches, wolf packs and desperadoes. After capturing Vincent, the inexperienced Mountie finds he is in no shape to get back to civilization without Vincent's help. Pedley is torn between fulfilling his duty and freeing the man who has saved his life.Written by
The character of Constable Pedley was inspired by early 20th century Canadian North West Mounted Police officer Albert Pedley. The officer was sent to capture a criminal in 1904 during a harsh winter. He suffered months of loneliness and cruel weather, falling victim to the white madness of snow country. Nevertheless, Pedley brought his prisoner to justice. See more »
Early in the movie, Brody's first name is said to be "Max" multiple times. At the end of the film during the hearing, the one time the judge states his name he says "Mike" Brody. In the on-screen credits, the character is only listed with the last name "Brody." See more »
I enjoyed both Corey and Granger performance. However, I especially liked Corey's strong character performance in "The Wild North". Corey's understated character contrasts well with the mountain man persona of Granger. In later years, Corey always was cast in submissive, retiring roles which really did not suit him. Corey projects a strong 'quiet' type of presence and with a high level of integrity. Cinema photography and accuracy is especially fabulous in this movie. No fake Hollywood sets for this movie.
The story builds as the character development becomes apparent. Viewers begin to identify and feel for the characters making the story even more vivid and realistic. The best compliment I can pay this movie is that it allowed me to feel like I was up North with them during the trek!
