That magic word brought thousands to Alaska, and in their wake came thousands more-gamblers, thieves, wantons, and human driftwood. One man's fight for the girl he loves in this cruel, hard country provides the theme for one of the screen's great pictures. (Print Ad- Auckland Star, ((Auckland, NZ)) 14 September 1929)
