Canadian officer Pedley slaps the cuffs on an accused murderer, mountain man Jules Vincent. The captive offers no resistance. Mother Nature will. As the Mountie and his dog team mush onward to take Vincent to justice, an avalanche, a marauding wolf pack, temperatures of -38 degrees and more perils await them. Survival depends on the man who knows the mountains and ravines best - Pedley's prisoner. Stewart Granger portrays Vincent and Wendell Corey is Pedley in an eye-filling adventure (with location filming in Sun Valley, Idaho) that also stars Cyd Charisse. Andrew Marton, co-director of Granger's "King Solomon's Mines", helms the brawny survivalist action.
