Klondike Fever Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Jeff East stars as writer Jack London in this fictional adventure account that takes place during the Alaskan gold rush. London and his partner Robin (Merritt Sloper) clash with the villain Soapy Smith (Rod Steiger), a former priest turned bad who is equally mean to dogs and humans. That's Lorne Greene behind the black moustache as constable Sam Steele, with Angie Dickenson as saloon-girl Belinda McNair. The feature fails to live up to the Northwoods adventure dramas made popular by author London. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi
