| So so mountain western
Fangs of the Arctic is a Canadian Mountie adventure although you would never guess than from the extremely strange title.

Mounties Kirby Grant and Robert Sherman pose as trappers to try and find the killer of another trapper and stop some illegal poaching at the same time. They are aided by a dog called Chinook who I assume was a sort of second rate Lassie at the time. It's a face paced tale and Kirby Grant makes a good lead. Unfortunately the back up acting is pretty poor and some of the scenes are a bit too amateur.

I imagine from the short running time and low budget that this was made as a B movie so you can't really expect too much. There is a fair bit of violence thrown into the short running time although a couple of the death scenes weren't dealt with well.

Although by no stretch of the imagination a good film it is at least moderately entertaining. For those looking for a bit of nostalgia and a western with a different setting it's worth a look.
