Overview

One of the most entertaining of the Western movies to come out of the 1950s, this is a Stewart vehicle in which he must take on the ruthlessness of the frontier. Set in the Yukon, Stewart and his friends are driving cattle to market from Wyoming to Canada, where the boom towns pay top dollar for beef. When they arrive in Skagway, the corrupt sheriff of the town (John McIntire) steals the cattle and Stewart et al are forced to fight for their herd. Together with the female saloon keeper of another town (Ruth Roman), they find themselves up against an evil they were not prepared for. When Stewart's friend (portrayed by Walter Brennan) is killed, he is forced to go up against the evil sheriff. Good versus evil in incredible Yukon settings makes this an above average Western.

Jimmy Stewart isn't well known to be a great cowboy hero, but in the Stewart-Mann westerns of the 1950's, he definitely deserves that title. Although not the greatest of the westerns, it still has a good story, with good casting (including Walter Brennan, Jay C. Flippen, Ruth Roman, Corrine Calvet, and John McIntire). Great addition to any Jimmy Stewart and or western lover's collection.

Mr. stewart gives a terrific performance in this movie based in the alaskan great outdoors, a movie that will remind you of how movies should be.
