Director Robert Aldrich and screenwriter Christopher Knopf bring us a spectacular Depression-era tale, Emperor of the North (1973) featuring a pair of stalwart veteran actors, Lee Marvin and Ernest Borgnine, as, respectively, a jaunty hobo determined to ride a train and the vicious conductor equally resolved to prevent this eventuality. Also starring Keith Carradine as the train-jumper’s young protégé, and featuring a potent score by Frank De Vol.
