After witnessing an incident on a foreign ship off California coast, a U.S. Treasury agent aboard a Coast Guard vessel decides to further investigate the matter by following a crime trail leading to China, Egypt, Lebanon and Cuba.
Ex-cop Vic Barron crossed the wrong mobsters; his wife and child were killed and he himself scarred, framed and imprisoned. On release, Vic has but one desire, revenge on still-hiding Tino Morelli. The trail leads to the isolated city of Ketchikan, Alaska, where Vic finds his enemy...also the latter's charming little daughter...and tavern owner Peggy Harding, who's fascinated by the soft-spoken but volcanic Vic. And someone they're not expecting has violent designs on them...Written by

The Ketchikan airline depicted, Ellis Air, was an authentic Ketchikan company, founded by Bob Ellis in 1936. The aircraft shown in the movie is a Grumman G-21 Goose amphibious craft. If you look closely at the bottom of the plane you can see the wheels, which were used for ground landings. Ellis Air merged with Alaska Coastal Airlines in 1962, and this concern was itself taken over by Alaska Airlines in 1968. See more »
During the Indian Ceremonial Ground scene , Mark Stevens (playing a character named Vic Barron) is wearing a shirt bearing the initials M.S. One wonders whether this was an in-joke or an oversight. See more »
Well, me being a resident of Ketchikan, Alaska my entire life, am amazed. I just watched this film about 2 weeks ago, and I think it was awesome. The areal shots of the town are really neat. Now, of course, the city has changed quite abit, but its still neat to see historic Ketchikan in a great film. For those of whom that have seen this movie, the house that it was shot in just recently burned down. That was sad, because obviously it was a very historic house. I would suggest that everyone see this film. It was awesomely filmed, and it is very entertaining. Also, if you are ever in the Ketchikan area, hit it up! Anyway, thats all I have to say.
