MRS.MIKE DICK POWELL - EVELYN KEYES (1948)
AN EXTREMELY RARE LATE FORTIES NORTHWEST ADVENTURE EPIC WITH A GREAT CAST.
Mrs. Mike" is a better than average early Hollywood depiction of life in Canada's far north. Life in the North-West Territories in the early 1900's had moments of great beauty but was for the most part, harsh and cruel. The film captured the essence of this without resorting to standard stereotypes. There isn't a single manhunt of the "a Mountie always gets his man" variety in the whole plot. Most of the characters managed to portray depth and an insight into their difficult lives.
