Storyline

Britisher Sir Charles Farrington and a son, Rex Farrington, arrive in a Russian Soviet territory searching for another Farrington son, Michael,who has been thrown into prison. Valarie Perrovna is a singer who is in love with the imprisoned son and she provides the searchers with the information as to where the missing son is being held. They all go there and help Michael escape. But is their escape vehicle---a flat wagon pulled by three horses--- fast enough and sturdy enough through the snow to beat the Commmisar and his troops to the Rumanian border?

Trivia

This film is one of over 200 titles in the list of independent feature films made available for television presentation by Advance Television Pictures announced in Motion Picture Herald 4 April 1942. At this time, television broadcasting was in its infancy, almost totally curtailed by the advent of World War II, and would not continue to develop until 1945-1946. Because of poor documentation (feature films were often not identified by title in conventional sources) no record has yet been found of its initial television broadcast. It's earliest documented telecasts took place in Chicago Saturday 2 July 1949 on WGN (Channel 9) and in New York City Wednesday 6 July 1949 on WPIX (Channel 11). See more »

Latvia doubles nicely for Russia.
14 June 2006 | by horn-5See all my reviews

Britisher Ronald Squire and a son, Anthony Bushell, arrive in a Russian Soviet territory searching for another Squire son, Barry McKay, who has been thrown into prison.

Binnie Barnes, not that far removed from her Texas Ruby days while traveling the world with roper Tex McLeod, is a singer who is in love with the imprisoned son and she provides the searchers with the information as to where the missing son is being held.

They all go there and since McKay just politely walks out of the prison with nary a by-your-leave to anybody, the question is why hasn't he done so before.

The other question is whether their escape vehicle---a flat wagon pulled by three horses---is fast enough and sturdy enough through the snow to beat the Commmisar and his troops to the Rumanian border.
