Mandre (Edmund Lowe) survives a plane crash but is left stranded in the middle of nowhere, Klondike, where he's going to be snowed in at least till spring - which isn't too bad in Mandre's mind, since he's a brilliant surgeon running away from his past, being somehow responsible for the death of his best friend on the operating table, having tried a new way to remove a brain tumor - though objectively, his friend's death wasn't his fault of course. Apart from that, Mandre has come to like the place he stays at, Sam's (Robert Middlemass) trading post, basically because he has fallen in love with Sam's employee Peg (Lucile Fairbanks). And this is the main problem, because Sam's son Jim (William Henry) has fallen in love with Peg as well, but Jim isbound to the wheelchair due to a brain tumor - exactly like the one Mandre's friend was suffering from. Being haunted by his past, Mandre at first refuses to operate on Jim, even if that would redeem him, fearing to lose him too and completely lose face even here, in the middle of nowhere, but of course, in the end, his instincts as a doctor are stronger, and he operates after all - and after surgery, Jim actually seems to get worse by the hour ... but of course, now Jim is only simulating in a fit of jealousy, and he wants to drive Mandre away, even using a gun to threaten him, before daring to celebrate his recovery, fearing that Peg would love Mandre and not him. But ultimately, Mandre can convince Jim that Peg is only in love with him and him alone, and thus it all ends happily, with the doctor leaving, returning to his world as a celebrated surgeon, while Jim gets the girl.

 

Little more than a by-the-numbers melodrama that seems to consciously refuse to miss even one cliché along the way. That the film was made pretty much on the cheap (which shows in the limited number of sets, the limited outside-shots and the like) doesn't hurt the film at all actually, it's the total predictability of the story that makes one lose interest before too long. Apart from that, the film's also a bit on the dull side.

N ot really worth your while, though to be honest, there's much worse out there.
