In the Eskimo drama Justice of the Far North, Wamba (Marcia Mason), the half-breed wife of Eskimo chieftain Umluk (Arthur Jasmine), runs off with white trader Mike Burke (Chuck Reisner), kidnapping Umluk's sister Nootka (Laska Winter) for good measure. Harpoon in hands, Umluk chases after his errant wife and her lover across the treacherous Arctic tundra. Ultimately, he rescues Nootka, leaving Wamba and Burke to fend for themselves in the icy wastes. Comedian Max Davidson adds a touch of the Lower East Side in the peripheral role of Izzy Hawkins. Though set in the Far North (at least that's what the title says), the film appears to have been shot primarily in Northern California.
