EMPEROR OF THE NORTH | Out Now

Set in America during the Great Depression, Emperor of the North is the story of a violent battle of wills between a sadistic train guard, Shack, (Ernest Borgnine) who has vowed no vagrant will ride his train and survive, and a single-minded drifter, Number 1, (Lee Marvin) who is determined to make a lie of the boast. Emperor of the North depicts a microcosm of this subculture set in Oregon and actually used the Oregon Pacific and Eastern Railroad.
