Spawn of the North
This adventure is set amidst the booming Alaskan salmon industry. Jim Kimmerlee (Henry Fonda) and Tyler Dawson (George Raft) were close friends until Tyler got greedy and joined a gang of Russians who steal fish from the nets of other fisherman. Now the two are sworn enemies. When not toiling in the sea, Jim woos the lovely Dian (Louise Platt), the daughter of the town newspaper editor. This film was remade in 1954 as Alaska Seas.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Half-baked Western set as an Alaskan fish story about childhood friends who become bitter rivals as adults."
