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.

And Lee Marvin is one of the bums. It’s the 3rd time he’s on this list but the first for actor Sid Haig! Will there be more?

Below is a German trailer for you, just because it’s funny to see Lee Marvin talk out of sync.

PREVIOUS ON THE LIST: 47. The Comedy of Terrors (1963)
