In 1837 French and English inhabitants took part in a rebellion against British rule in the Canadian North. The film, picking up on this incident, stars Barrymore as a young man who believes his mother is dead. Little does he know that she lives and is leading the revolution! Calvet

plays the fiery woman, known as "Lafleur." Her acts cause some major problems, since her son is the British governor of the province. There are some misty-eyed scenes when he discovers her identity and that she sacrificed herself so he wouldn't be taken hostage. Rush and Duval are the two lasses

competing for his affections. QUEBEC was filmed on location in the north Canadian woods and the scenery is used well. Sweeping shots of the rugged terrain are mingled with the story, and the action sequences are nicely staged. The dialog is wordy: these characters speak in paragraphs rather than

sentences. The pacing is okay but the film could have stood some editing for a better result. The ensemble isn't bad, and Barrymore shows that he inherited some of the family talent.
