EMPEROR OF THE NORTH POLE
1973, 20th Century Fox, 118 min, Dir: Robert Aldrich

Ernest Borgnine reunites with his "Dirty Dozen" co-star Lee Marvin and director Robert Aldrich for this Depression-era drama. Borgnine is a sadistic railroad conductor determined to keep hobos off of his train; Marvin is an outcast who strives to become a legend by battling and besting Borgnine. Highlighted by a young Keith Carradine as the rascal Cigaret, and a taut script by Christopher Knopf (A COLD NIGHT’S DEATH).
