The Great Barrier

Ambitious, stirring British Western that pits man against the elements in the battle to drive a railway through the Canadian Rockies

Western 1937 81 mins


This ambitiously mounted, rousing British Western pits man - and the odd woman - against the elements in the attempt to drive the Canadian Pacific Railway through the Rocky Mountains. Impressive location work in Glacier National Park enriches this tale of an inveterate gambler (Hollywood's Richard Arlen) being won over by the cause - and the eyes of the foreman's daughter - and persuaded to join the valiant struggle to complete the line.
