Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #46: Emperor of the North Pole (1973)
46. Emperor of The North Pole [DVD] (1973)
Not really that rare of a film but it’s rare to meet people that remembers the title. It’s mostly know as “that movie where Ernest Borgnine has a sledgehammer and throws bums off a train”. So this is not only a recommendation – it’s a reminder.
The title is Emperor of the North Pole and while it doesn’t have any emperors and doesn’t take place anywhere near the North Pole it has… Ernest Borgnine with a sledgehammer throwing bums off a train.
Below is a German trailer for you, just because it’s funny to see Lee Marvin talk out of sync.
