It's a little hard to believe that James Oliver Curwood wrote all the stories attributed to him on film. Allegedly inspired by a Curwood yarn, Tentacles of the North is set somewhere near the Arctic circle. From what can be gathered by contemporary reviews, it's the story of a bold adventurer (Gaston Glass) who wins a pretty girl (Alice Calhoun) despite the twin threats of an evil villain and a raging snowstorm. Some of the cinematography was attractive, but for the most part the story was a bore. Tentacles of the North was produced by Ben Wilson, a onetime serial star who specialized in "B"-grade actioners of this nature.
