Canadian Pacific 1949


Tom Andrews is a surveyor and railway construction boss working on laying the Canadian Pacific Railway across Western Canada and through the Rocky Mountains to British Columbia. He’s found a pass through the Rockies and the work is continuing though not everyone thinks the railway is a good idea. Among those who are against the building of the CPR is Dirk Rourke, who runs a number of trading posts that will no longer be needed once civilization comes to the West. Rourke’s confederates are steeling dynamite and are slowing down construction by blasting away at every opportunity. Tom is engaged to a pretty Métis girl, Cecile, whose father is working with O’Rourke., but he’s become attracted to the new female doctor, Edith Cabot, who’s arrived with the hospital car. The final part of O’Rourke’s plan is to stir up the local Indians to keep the railway from being finished. IMDB
