| Excellent, exciting, exceptional entry for Monogram & Criterion
This is an exciting blend of cowboy and pilot, of horse and airplane.

Tex O'Brien is in it and that would be enough for me, but in fact there is an exceptional cast, with some colorfully named characters who add some weight and who flesh out the story.

My copy of "Yukon Flight" is pretty bad, with some godawful dark scenes that make it hard to follow. As a result of the poor quality picture, I have had to extrapolate a bit, and I still loved this movie.

It is part of the Great American Western series from Echo Bridge Entertainment, Volume 35 of "over 30 Volumes," as it says on the case and "over 40" as it says on the other case in the box.

James Newill is the nominal star and is the title character, Sergeant Renfrew, who also sings. He is more Nelson Eddy than Gene Autry in style, so anyone who doesn't like operetta might feel like fast-forwarding. That's not a problem for me, though.

Roy Barcroft is one of the minor bad guys, in a different kind of role for him.

Jack Clifford plays a character named "Whispering Smith," but he has no resemblance to any other "Whispering Smith," such as that of Alan Ladd, Richard Carlson, or Audie Murphy. Apparently his character shows up in two other Renfrew films.

This is fun. I only hope you find a better copy than mine, which is still fun.

Added 17 January 2015: There is a copy at YouTube that seems to be much better.
