• "Northwest Passage" (1958-1959) was produced through MGM Studios. And, this, in turn, gave this TV series a good-sized budget to work with which allowed it pay much more attention to the period details of its episodes.

    Set in the mid-18th century (primarily along the border of the St. Lawrence River) - "Northwest Passage" told its stories of French Canadian/Anglo-American warfare through the heroic and rugged activities of Major Robert Rogers and his 2 trusty associates, Hunk Marriner and Langdon Towne.

    For the most part - I found the "Northwest Passage" to be quite a satisfactory TV adventure program from the glory days of yesteryear.
