*""A love triangle set against the turn-of-the-century gold rush. According to a feature article on the film in ETR, much of the film was shot on locations in and around Truckee, CA, Lummi Island, WA, Seymour Gorge, British Columbia and Banff, Alberta. En route to location, the Canadian Pacific train's engine was wrecked by a rock slide that killed the engineer. The actors were in the car behind the engine and were battered by falling rocks but escaped disaster.
Just a few days later, a snow slide at Lake Minnewanka threw several actors and cameras off an icy ledge of a glacier. Meantime, actress Viola Dana was traveling to meet the company when an earthquake erupted. Actor Tom London dislocated three vertebrae in a fall. A carpenter broke his leg when he was thrown from a barge into rapids and another actor nearly drowned in the rapids."
