delphinium Lyr Req: Capture of Albert Johnson (Wilf Carter) (36) RE: Lyr Req: the mad trapper of rat river 20 Apr 04


Sandy's song was written by John Spearn, mp3 available on his web site here.
Stompin' Tom Connors also has a song about "Wop May, Wop May, the top Canadian pilot of the day" ...

There have been at least 3 books about Albert Johnson/the mad trapper (I have Dick North's somewhere) and at least 1 movie, "Death Hunt" (1981). One (credible) site says the movie is "inaccurate to the point of ludicrous" - but it stars Charles Bronson, Lee Marvin & Angie Dickinson if you like that kind of Hollywood action adventure.

Ranger1: King lived.

Another thread drift drift: The last surviving mountie of the mad trapper manhunt, Robert McDowell, died last year aged 94. RIP
