The Great Yukon Blizzard of 1888 sets the scene for this hilarious romp over the fields of melodramatics. Included in the cast are: the fair and lovely maiden, the poor, crusty, but honest freelance lumberjack, the stalwart and heroic Mountie and a villain you will simply love to loathe! Add to their ranks a snow-blinded Inuit, a flapjack-filching bruin and one befuddled lass who keeps forgetting her identity, and you have a madcap farce in the finest and funniest tradition of the melodrama. Will Fangduster T. Barrelbottom get away with his unmentionably nefarious scheme? Can our true-blue hero ever hope to clear his foully besmirched name? Is there a chance that the heroine may escape the sawmill blade?
