In Nome, Alaska, miner Roy Glennister and his partner Dextry, financed by saloon entertainer Cherry Malotte, fight to save their gold claim from crooked commissioner Alexander McNamara.
In the beginning of the movie a man is shot at the hotel and the manager mentions that the victim's name was Lee Marcus. This is also the name of the associate producer of this movie (Lee S. Marcus).
I imagine that dress is supposed to have a chilling effect. Well if it is, it isn't working, 'cuz you'd look good to me, baby, in a burlap bag.
When Glennister (John Wayne) and his men prepare to blow up the bank and steal the safe, they disguise themselves with what appeared to be coal dust to blacken their faces, but in a subsequent scene when Glennister visits Cherry Malotte (Marlene Dietrich) and her maid Idabelle (Marietta Canty), he's wearing traditional black-face makeup.
A cultish pyramid scheme and a twisted series of murders hit the small screen along with a powerful new documentary about our attachment to even smaller screens.
