EMPEROR OF THE NORTH POLE 1973, starring Ernest Borgnine, Lee Marvin, and Keith Carradine. This movie was re-released later under the shorter title Emperor of the North. You may find it under either name. The original title is from a depression era hobo joke that says if you are the emperor of the North Pole, then you are the king of nothing. Lee Marvin plays a train-riding hobo named A#1. Ernest Borgnine plays Shack, a train conductor who doesn't like anyone hopping a free ride on his train. And therein lies the conflict. There are some vicious fights in this one, and some brutal scenes not for the faint of heart. Keith Carradine plays a young hobo learning the ropes.
