Snow Dog (1950)
This time out a white wolf who is a dead ringer for Chinook is going around killing trappers. The people in the area call it The Phantom Wolf. When MacDonald and Chinook run across the wolf and some it's handiwork Chinook battles the wolf until the Mountie intervenes. The phantom flees leaving behind it's collar its clear that someone is behind the attacks.
While less cruelly violent than some of the films that followed this film is just as action packed as the best films in the series with some great fights (including one where Grant gets his ass kicked) and some solid intrigue. This is the sort of grand adventure film that made me understand why this series went to ten entries.
I like this film a great deal. Definitely a reason to pick up the volume of Kirby Grant and Chinook films that this appears.
