Northwest Passage (1940) trailer

 This movie is pretty outdated but still of interest for its sets and scenery. Costumes are bad. I have the novel it is based on which is from 1937. Pretty grisly.  Trailer here



You can buy it on DVD cheaply i just checked

There was a tv series spin off that is on DVD
